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.
