Fractal MondrianFeb 08 2011

If Mandelbrot and Mondrian had a baby, it might look a little something like this:

Fractal Mondrian

Awesome. There's also a zoomable version but not a very deep one...would be nice to have an infinitely zoomable version in Processing or something.

Make your own MondrianMay 27 2010

Composition with JavaScript is a Piet Mondrian painting with moveable lines and changeable colors so that you can make your own version.

Composition with Javascript is an interactive work made using HTML, CSS, Javascript and jQuery, based on Piet Mondrian's "Composition with Yellow, Red, Black, Blue and Grey" (1920). It allows everybody deconstruct the original painting and form it again in whatever he or she wants. Lines are shiftable (just drag it with your mouse) and colours changeable (click on it). Texture of the painting was preserved for authentic look. One can play with composition, forms and colours, alter the harmony of the piece or even destroy it and compose something pictorial.

Computer vs. MondrianApr 15 2010

In the mid-1960s, Bell Labs' A. Michael Noll programmed a computer to paint like Piet Mondrian. Can you tell who did this one before clicking through?
