Yeah. Not much else to say about it.

I like cheap, sloppy printing, like the kind you see on cardboard boxes. Bad printing was the beginning of Algorithmic Art. Set it up; watch it wander.

I like that deep, saturated orange color. It looks so wonderfully artificial and synthetic like a cheap hard candy from a plastic wrapper.

Don’t feel too bad if you think all this stuff is junk. I like a lot of oddball things that probably (I’m guessing) don’t have much appeal to most other people.

Dried papaya. It could look like this. But the color is too orangey. Of course the color has been “enhanced” to make it more appealing to shoppers. Most dried things look brown. When life leaves something, color is not far behind.

They’re indexed pngs; only 16 colors, which makes for small file sizes of about 15 – 20k each. I’ve got dial-up, so I notice these things. I’ve got Windows 98 too. I used to have a 14″ monitor until just a couple of weeks ago. Joy is finding your crack in the wall and living in it.
