A Mini Tour of Small Art

Sunday January 25, 2009

Hello again! Sorry for the lateness of this post, but fate and reality have conspired of late to keep me from getting to all I'd like to do. It's another quiet Sunday night and the rain has passed for the moment. The topic for tonight is minimalism and the focus will be on small works of art. The essential challenge of a small art work is to express an idea in a limited space. Writing tiny poems on post-it notes is a great concept and one that bears further exploration. A poet in Ireland has a blog containing a number of sticky notes with some small and thoughtful verse. A favicon is a 16x16 square image that is used to identify a web page. You can view this cool article about how to create your own favicons with a good selection of examples. Finally, I've found a page with links to 25 brilliant animated short movies. The shorts here are varied and there's something here for just about any taste. And that's it for this tour of small art works. I'll have more stuff to share next week.

The loops of the week are some strange synthesizer loops.

The picture of the week was created using Bryce.

Send your comments and feedback and I’ll read it all and respond to some of it.
Bye for now!
