"Art from text" is a kind of visual reflection on geometric, or abstract art. It relies on input from users and grapples with claims about that we all make about art. This doesn't deny nor affirm anything, it only puts out some relevent questions for contemplation. Users may experiment with typing text as a meaningful statement or simply as an instrument for generating some colorful visual effects. They can also email me some suggestions about what color they would choose to represent a particular letter instead of its predetermined color. This work has been made as a Java applet.
