156 - Art For Art's Sake

Day 156. I was playing with a new app tonight called Repix, a very interesting painting app for iOS. It has a series of brushes and filters that can be applied over a photograph to create effects that range from painterly to other-worldly. It's quite cool.

This completely abstract image started life as a small cropped corner of a larger photo ( this actually started out as a picture of a teacher and kindergarten kid using a iPad together, not that you can tell that now.) After applying a few effects and brushes it quickly distorts the image beyond recognition. I'd like to get my kids trying this app.

"But what's it a picture of?"

Nothing now. I just found it to be an interesting arrangement of colours and shapes. Does it have to be "of" something.
