Targelin - The part not drawn

Targelin is a method of drawing detail in the most important parts of a work - the more important, the more detail - but the purpose is not to point out the most important part. Instead, they are substituted for by large triangles and the undrawn portion gives off only an aura of what is there. The undrawn parts are, in other words, imaginary symbols. At the beginning, small triangles are gathered as pixels, transmitting information as symbols. Those triangles gradually grow larger and change from determined symbols to imaginary symbols, this time starting to receive the information. It works as an auto-regulator of the imaginary portions, starting with requiring slight guesses and gradually progressing to causing an amplified level of imagination.

The Targelin algorithm
1. The screen with the image is divided into two right triangles by a diagonal line.
2. If there is something of interest in a triangle, the triangle is trisected.
3. In case there are triangles remaining unevaluated due to the partition, return to step 2.
4. Paint out the average color in all the triangles.
5. If necessary, trimming around the area of the triangles.
