S5 mosaic Installation

So I created this mosaic of pretty much every picture I ever took at work using a program called Mazaika. The image was constructed from more than 4,500 pictures of all the people and products that came together to enable us to create the amazing Ion Torrent S5. The image turned out to be quite popular with my company. So much so that we’re having three large (54″ x 48″) prints made – one for each of the Ion Torrent locations. This is a visualization of what it will look like displayed on a wall in our South San Francisco office.

UPDATE: The print is now up, (photo coming soon!) and it looks awesome. I highly recommend the pros at Light Source for your next large printing job.

Major credit goes to my coworker Earl Hubbell for suggesting I attempt this. Thanks also to Simon, Penny, Nermin and Jim G. for indulging me and for displaying my work so prominently.

Since you’ve been asking, here’s a link to a full-size compressed JPEG. I strongly suggest you right-click the link and SAVE the file locally, and view it in your favorite image viewer. For the Mac, I recommend Xee. On Windows, the free Irfanview cannot be beat.

But wait – there’s more. Here is a short video which starts zoomed in on a few of the key designers of the product and fades back to reveal my rendering.
