PIXELTONES (SCAN SERIES) by Tom R. Chambers

This series is a derivative of Pixelscapes utilizing halftone conversions and the Lens applet to explore Abstract Expressionism through kinetics as well as offer a static/kinetic comparative. As you click and view the scans, allow your vision to "play" on both fields (background and simulated foreground via magnification and movement) ... as it were ... to establish a relationship between the two. Click on text links, and allow for loading time.
