Mariel Bass, Erik D. Demaine, and Martin L. Demaine, “Algorithmic Layout of Characters in Perspective”, in Proceedings of 26th Annual Conference of BRIDGES: Mathematics, Art, Music, Architecture, Culture (BRIDGES 2023), July 27–31, 2023.

We describe a simple and practical algorithm for arranging a collection of images (“characters”) in a perspective layout that looks uniform. Randomness and tunable parameters make for varied layouts, with no repetition of a pattern. We present an application of this algorithm to an art installation made from paper printed with computed layouts and folded along curved creases.
