Exceldrawings 5
Dozens of drawings all made with Microsoft Excel – Danielle writes – “Microsoft Excel is a program designed to track and compute information, but here I am using Excel as a drawing tool. These drawings are a part of a series of sixty drawings that I executed (more or less) every day for fifty-eight days. Each drawing is in a new ‘worksheet,’ which is automatically set up as a grid. These drawings were made by changing cell preferences for background color, fill pattern, and border styles and from time to time inserting ‘comment’ boxes and letters or words. Other manifestations of these drawings are 58 Days Worth of Drawing Exercises in Microsoft Excel as Rendered for Web and Animated Daily Excel Drawings (2005, ongoing)” [via] – Link.

    looks great! way too much ocd for me… wonder if you could get it to “animate” using the excel formulas and built in functions… changing out a number in a cell causes other cells to change color.
