Being Jackson Pollock
Putting together yesterday’s ruminations on essence, existence and lawn mowery, specifically the section about the alleged lack of any obvious strategy underlying my approach to the task, I came across this Jackson Pollock emulator, a site that allows you to try your hand at applying virtual paint to e-canvas in the fashion that Pollock pioneered in meatspace. The emulator is what I used to create the “Jackson Pollock painting” inserted in the body of the post. Instructions on how to use it are here, but I hadn’t read them when I used it yesterday. Try it, and save your masterpiece using MWSnap, a free (and extremely useful) utility that allows you to take a screen capture from any window on your screen.
