Okay, since some of y'all are art snobs, this is brilliant: The Hockneyizer: Create a simulated collage from a single photograph. Via bifurcated rivets.

oh boy, that type of collage has been around FOREVER! which takes me to the question, "What is art and where does it come from?"

If it's useless and it pisses you off, it's art. Conversely, if it's useless and you love it, it's art.

David Hockney[Wiki] popularized the style around 1970, but in a book he wrote in the late '90s he ruffled a lot of feathers in the art world by stating that he stole the idea from painters who worked hundreds of years earlier, that the old masters had paintings with alternate perspective that suggested that they tended to create their images with many slightly disparate views of the subject.

To be fair, Hockney's sub-images actually have a separate perspective, whereas this just breaks up a single perspective.

I like the way BigHugeLabs hooks into my Flickr account and lets me make interesting compositions of my images without having to muck with Photoshop:

LOL Spirit

If something is designed to elicit an emotional response, it's art. So yeah, if it pisses you off, or if you feel approval for it, it's art by definition.

Hurrah! If I piss you off by comparing you to a Nazi, it's art! :-D
