For a project using synthetic images (styleGAN to be precise), I'm looking at many different manifestations of an eye. Displaying them on a grid unintentionally created a trypophobia-like (fear of small holes) feel.
I don’t have any background in art, and I'm very curious to how this image evokes a particular response – and how I can make it stronger. What can I do to increase this effect? Adding the black lines seems to help a good deal, as they highlight the contrast between them.
