Blind Contours is a software program made with Processing that generates its own blind contour drawings.

I drew my own blind contour portraits—I find that hands are just as distinctive and telling as faces—that, once scanned, were turned into vectors.

Using Geomerative, a Processing library that facilitates generative geometry, I wrote a program that interprets a vectorized drawing and orders the points into an array. This allows the program to randomly transition from drawing to drawing and, in the process, create unique images in every frame. Each time the software is run, a different sequence of images is produced.
