  • AS usual, an interesting idea. Did you write this program yourself to do automatic drawing?

  • Wow, that is so neat! I wanted to come up with some artsy mumbo jumbo about what it means, but I just like it. That's all.

  • Sharp stuff mister...but you know, I get the feeling you're not really pushing yourself to your potential...how about making one of these that does laundry and creates art? Just kidding...always impressed by people that can keep their action scripting straight!

  • To answer benconservato's question... I illustrated the basic shape elements of the mask, then I wrote a bit of code to randomize the output of those elements (i.e. scale, color, angle).

  • Very cool! This may be the first interactive IF entry I've seen. Great take on the topic. Really fun.

  • Jordan, what you are doing in these is new. It is a fresh take. It is not static and tired. I bet one day this type of art will help kill those tired dusty museum things and get art away from that ancient traditional media that we have been using forever.

  • Hey Jordan... LOVE THIS PIECE!!! The colours are soooooo nice and the compositions are just great... I would have loved to have a piece like that printed big, on a canvas above my sofa.. keep it coming:)

  • This is so cool and interesting. Makes me sad I'm so computer challenged.

  • I asked him how he did it, and what most impressed me is that he only drew one mask!! (actually only half a mask!) That is all the same illustration, just manipulated by his awesome action script skills. I know I'm a little biased, being his wife and all, but wow, that just blows me away.
