Whether you discovered it at a fair or you had the home version, spin art was fun to create with and always produced something new and interesting. It was an opportunity to learn that the order you added paint to the spinning paper was important in determining the final outcome. You might even think of it as your first lesson in using layers, which would come in handy later in life when you learned to use applications such as Photoshop.
In a moment of boredom, I was goofing off in my studio and found a variation to paint based spin art. This method involves an iPhone with an HDR app and a spinning chair. I’m now thinking about taking my chair out to various locations to explore the possibilities.
(Note to those who don’t spin well, dizziness is a side effect!)
