Hey, wait a minute! It said I was normal. You know that can't be right.

Well, maybe just in the mathematical sense: normal vectors are perpendicular, and that's Mondrian all over. Don't take it personally; I'll bet you got extremely unusual rectangles!

Hmmm. Is it accurate?

Mine turns out in shades of beige. How do you think that feels? Urrgh.

Mine was disappointingly boring. Squares, etc with a few colors.

sniff, sniff...... how apt - sob!!

Meh, mine ended up mostly off-white, with a small section of brown and a smaller section of red. I thought I was slightly more interesting than that. Oh well, I'll just have to take that again in a few years and see what happens. :P

See, the truth* is that Mondrian found bright colours boring. He reduced most of his canvases to contain only horizontals and verticals, with primary colours. These, to him, were the building blocks of our world. In order to re-invent the human social environment, he first had to decompose it into its basic elements.

Therefore, in Mondrian's world, secondary and compound colours are eminently complex and sophisticated. However, diagonals would be heretical, and curves would be simply absurd.

So, if your image came out as subtly-coloured rectangles, you're obviously an incredibly interesting, profound soul!

*: I'm really just winging it based on fading memories of art history class.

Then, I am truly profound.

I had a long black rectangle about a fourth of the way down. And, a few lines, of course.

I love Mondrian's pieces. Mine would not have made it out of his studio, though.

Actually, I didn't have any rectangles at all. Just lines in varying widths - black, white & grey overall. Reminiscent of a swatch of plaid...hmmm, plaid....there was another thread mentioning plaid. Maybe I should see if there are any openings left over there......

Lots a lines, similar to a previous poster and the letter 'P'. Sorry just had to Necro this. :D

Good golly. I really *am* a total square! *cries*

Heh. I'm actually an assortment of rectangles, four dark browns stacked atop one another into a stripe dominating, with a thin red stripe. The rest is all white, white, white.

Apparently, Mondrian channels Frank Lloyd Wright when he paints me.

I'm a series of straight lines crossing each other with a red square. I look like the friggin Partridge Family bus. Cool
