Digital Homage to the Square

For those of you who like Josef Albers’ Homage to the Square series, you might be interested in seeing my husband J’s recent project, “Auto Albers.” You can read a little about the project by clicking on the “?” on the lower left side of the project’s webpage.

J writes, “I recommend opening it in a new window and leaving it up for a long period of time. It changes very slowly, but can change quite dramatically throughout the day. That’s what I do, anyway…”

    I can't believe there aren't any comments on this yet. I absolutely love it! Give J a big pat on the back.

    I'm excited to show it to my class when we get to Albers! I think I'll make them stare at it for the entire class period. No lecture. Just the digital homage to the square.

    psst, the question mark is on the left hand side. Tell j that this is super cool.

    this would make an excellent screen saver. it should be.

    It's fun to check this every now and again, but I'm really looking forward to seeing more red (maybe by Valentine's Day).
