A Butterfly Through Time

ink on paper
This image is an embedding of natural imagery video of flowers and a butterfly. The embedding was performed using Locally Linear Embedding (LLE) a nonlinear dimensionality reduction technique, introduced by Saul & Roweis in 2000. LLE is an unsupervised machine learning algorithm. LLE was applied to five frames of creative commons video of a butterfly flapping it wings surrounded by flowers utilizing open source software.
