Re: Not Playing to Win


One of Seurat’s pointillist paintings is of the Eiffel Tower.



I thought I’d imitate that painting, but instead of dots, I’d make it out of blocks—Tetris blocks—which themselves are made of dots. Though I used guides and repeated basic patterns, I placed every dot individually.

I’ve titled it “Not Playing to Win,” since creating such a configuration in Tetris (if one were fortunate enough to get the right pieces and know where to place them) would quickly lead to the loss of the game. Still, I imagine it would be worth it and that reflects my attitude about the designs I create for the derby.

Might as well have a signature now since I have something to put into it.

If you're a fan of Tetris... I just found this great article on a bunch of different free, online Tetris games:
