Twexus Mysterious Photoart
November 21, 2002 2:34 AM   Subscribe

"Twexus does contain 15800 images today". Twexus is an enigmatic, engaging little database-driven photoart site that rewards you with new site features as your page views increase. I can't seem to tear free from the hypnotic effect of the "symmetry" page that concerns itself with my opinion on each proffered image. sorry, gotta go... must... return... to... twexus...

Very cool. Me, I like Dyptychon better. Nice to just sit there and let random thoughts spark and sputter with the juxtaposition of the images. Meditational.

Great link. All of the choices are great, and I'm hooked already.

Stavros, funny you should say that; I was going to mention something in the description about meditation, or contemplation, or Zen-ing out, then felt it was probably too subjective... but yes, I get the same effect.

I've been playing with the "search" feature. It doesn't seem to be completey random. I wonder what it's looking for when it finds this?

Keep clicking(and clicking, and clicking, and clicking). Seriously. I can't remember how long I went at it, but it was a very large number, and it kept producing more stuff.

That symmetry page is preventing me from doing work. I can't stop telling it what I think. It can't stop asking. All this and random pairs of images reloading in a separate window.
Too much.

wobh - I don't have a clue, but I've had some incredibly poignant returns from the search function... I've even made screen shots to document some of them.

The symmetry page reminds me of WhatsBetter.com

I just got the 'grid' option. It's pretty cool.

I've got video, grid, array, and distance. I just let those diptychs keep on comin' and see what pops up on the menu...

This symmetry thing is evil. Where did my morning go?

The diptychon is like watching a Boards of Canada track. Ooh, I just got "distance"!
