Image Tinkering

I take a small jpeg of a jumping spider and a.) reproduce it programatically at the same size; b.) grab pixel-level data from the cursor and c.) reproduce each pixel as a large square to recompile an image from those larger “pixels”. Then you can reverse the compiling by making the tiles tumble out, using a type of animation called “easing”.
