The 'CINEMA.JPEG' Project Distills Movies into a Few Image Files

Using only a handful of images to represent movies, artist Adrien Parlange created a series of movie collages in 'CINEMA.JPEG.' Parlange's exercise in minimalism distilled the essence of movies into a couple frames with accompanying file names. The artist only used classic movies as a base such as 'E.T.' and 'Top Gun.'

Each CINEMA.JPEG illustration takes advantage of two dimensional space along with small pictures to depict a film. In 'The Exorcist,' a 'girl_bridge.jpg' picture is shown arranged diagonally between two stair pictures. The 'Rocky' depiction shows three pictures of steps arranged vertically leading up to a picture of a man raising his hands in victory.

The films chosen were all picked by using Google. Parlange searched for the most popular films and chose the eight most popular ones. Stats for Uber-Minimalist Movie Collages Trending: Older & Chilly
