I'm always interested in infrastructure that brings people together and facilitates communication. I'm currently exploring social software, markup & scripting languages, and abstract games.

Line Art

I have never seen anything quite like this before. It’s gorgeous, it’s mesmerizing, you have to see it. Check out this series of prints as well.

I’m so trying to figure out how I could do something like this using Photoshop/Illustrator. I know they’re using custom software to build that, but I’m wanting to get in on that style of work for myself.

If I were to create works like that using low-tech techniques, how would I do it? Pencil crayons, chalk, or pastels won’t work; you can’t draw a lighter color on top of a darker one. Paint solves that problem, but you can’t keep the lines exactly the same width.

It would be possible to construct it with actual thread, but then the difficulty lies in figuring out how to fix the image in place.

If you’re a creative type, I’d love to hear your suggestions!
