My initials as Art.
Billed as a propaganda symbol generator, this is actually a very cool little widget for creating some nifty designs out of nothing but letters. The dials control how many instances of the characters are used, how close to the center of the symbol they appear, and how they are rotated around the center point.

This is another fine example of what Sam talked about—creativity exhibited by combining existing things in unusual combinations to come up with something new and interesting. Also reminds me a good deal of John’s Cosmic Knot . Also a good example of how Text is Beautiful (or can be), all by itself.
