one woman's view into a world of creativity

Similar to the installation in the above video, I found a really neat website with similar interactive capability.  Visit this website:  www.jacksonpollock.org  Don’t be fooled by the blank screen!  Move your mouse across the page and you will virtually dribble paint across the “canvas.”  Clicking changes the current paint color.  Although certainly not as technique driven as the actual thing, both of these serve to better explore and understand Jackson Pollock’s  famous splatter technique.  Pollock used paintbrushes and other tools to dribble, splatter, and throw paints of different colors and viscosities onto large canvases.  He also mixed in other materials like gravel, sand, and glass to incorporate more texture.  Although doubted by some, Pollock gained great fame for his revolutionary technique and legitimized a method that goes beyond the paintbrush.
