Andrew Sullivan picked this up from the Today and Tomorrow blog, which in turn picked it up from Bored and Beautiful: Alan Woo’s “Pie,” described thusly:

“Curious to see if there were any stark similarities or contrasts within particular films, Pie aims to create an incredibly simple and concise baseline of comparison of films trough one particular trait: colour. The outcome is a number of triptychs comparing various films of particular trilogies, directors or genres. A program written in processing captures each frame of each movie and essentially creates a ‘pie chart’ of the colours contained within each film producing a simplistic and abstracted representation. Each poster includes the film title, year, director, cinematographer, running time and occasionally, various surprising/unsurprising similarities.”

The images were created in the free program, Processing.
