SYNOPSIS

yinyang

DESCRIPTION

yinyang is a Gimp plugin. It generates a Yin/Yang symbol, which is a Chinese symbol of duality. It takes as parameters (provided by the Gimp user interface) the width and height of the resulting image; a toggle to indicate if "eyes" should be inserted (see EYES); a toggle to indicate if the eyes should be images that are loaded separately; the two filenames for the eyes and a toggle to indicate if anti-aliasing should be used.

EYES

The "eyes" are normally either black or white dots in the middle of the circular regions of the two halves of the Yin and Yang. If you like you can load these eyes from another image.

IDEAS

Here are some thoughts on how the plugin could be used:

  • Use as a low-opacity layer over an image to indicate duality or harmony.

  • Use to replace circular objects in an image (e.g. eyes, street signs, the sun, etc.)

  • Map two opposed or dualistic images. One into the black region, one into the white. For a really cool look, make the eyes show a peice of the other image.

  • Dip in 1 tbsp chunky peanut butter, 1 tbsp rice vinegar, 1 tbsp lime juice, 1 dash black pepper. Eat to taste.
