I never really appreciated the American abstract artist, Jackson Pollack, until a few years ago. At that time, I stumbled upon an article in a long forgotten magazine about how Jackson's work somehow related to fractals. I must admit that I didn't really understand the article at the time but it started me thinking. Later, a movie came out about Jackson Pollacks' life. It was a fascinating film with interesting insights about the American abstract art movement. It was while viewing the artwork depicted in that film that mesmerized me. I "got it". What had been "meaningless squiggles of paint on a canvas" were, somehow, transformed for me. My paradigm of understanding had shifted and I became a fan of Pollacks' work.

I found a cute little website that helps to "unleash the Jackson Pollack". Give it a try but I warn you. I'm sure that you will spend far too much time "painting" your own abstract masterpiece.

I can see that site passing some time while I waste away here at work.
