Re: The Floor is Lava!!!


A celebration of the best game ever: in my living room, the floor is lava, and it says so.

I don't get it. Does it say floor? Lava?

It's in the negative space. The floor spells lava. Step back. L bends around the couch, A is outside the table and dog bed, v is under the rug, second a is outside the tv stand and book case.

I can see it now, better when I look at the comp than the full size. Thanks for the help.

It says lava. I tried to use the composition of the image to form the letters out of the revealed sections of the floor. (Like parvulissula spotted.)

I was aiming to create a plausible looking living room that on closer examination has the message. That's how I was thinking "art as text" was supposed to work: an image that works as letters. It isn't quite as easy to read as a series of objects shaped into letters, but I wanted to make something that was actually a unified piece.

Thought this was a Daniel Tosh homage at first... good work using the negative space instead of the furniture. Adds another dimension to the actual title.
