        Site of the Day for Friday, July 4, 2008

        Cheery Greetings to All American Subscribers Celebrating
Independence Day!

        myData = myMondrian

Today's site offers an intriguing process where personal facts are
translated into art. Gentle Subscribers who recall the popularity of
Mondrian's art during the heady sixties and those who are
experiencing it for the first time may enjoy this quirky interactive
presentation.

"Where a human is reduced to data,
data is converted to values,
values are transformed into art." - from the website

The exhibit invites visitors to become one with the art of Dutch
painter Piet Mondrian born in 1872. Although Mondrian died in 1944,
his distinctive and unmistakable style, an abstract form
characterized by colored rectangles, offset by thick black lines,
became emblematic of the 1960's. The module asks a series of personal
multiple choice questions, ranging from eye color to favorite leisure
activity, the answers to which create a Mondrian-like work of art.

Amble over to the site for a diverting excursion into the world of
art on a personal level at:
