All a twitter

Tweeting an art work? You’ve got to be kidding. Well, no. Even though a tweet is only a maximum of 140 characters, Mario Klingemann managed to code (with that 140 characters) a series of polygons into a Voronoi Diagram ofthe Mona Lisa. The incredible thing to us is how little visual information you need to get the essential Mona Lisa image. Squinting helps but even without that we think most people would pick up this tweet as at least ‘school’ of Da Vinci. If you want to stare into the abyss and see how Klingemann does it, visit him here on Flickr.
