Harmonograms are visual designs based on harmonic analyses of strings of characters. Fourier descriptors are synthesized according to character positions and values, and then traditional methods are used to generate the resulting curves. Undersampling introduces visual artifacts that actually enhance the final designs. While their primary use is for the creation of artistic designs, harmonograms may have a practical application as a method for encoding and decoding information via the frequency domain.
