Optical Art Background Tile

Optical Art Background Tile

If it doesn’t make you go blind this makes an interesting repeating background tile. I’m not actually setting out to make optical art, I’m more interested in this instance with the underlying family of ellipses. The tones I have used here come from a method I am developing to visually represent values in simple arithmetic patterns I am exploring. The result of this geekiness is quite fun. Or does it only feel fun for the geek?

Here is the URL to a slightly smaller version of this tile:-

Feel free to use it for your blog or MySpace profile background, if this is your thing!
