Not Quite Square The Same Colour As The Background

Trying my best to make an artistic point. Not only is this a beautifully minimalist image, but it’s deliberately designed to lose its context over time; as the dynasties change, it’ll no longer be the same colour as the background, and eventually, Imgur will delete it.

Also, it’s saved as a JPEG, not a PNG, in case there’s unintentional art in the compression artifacts (if there are any in such a simple image). And, as the title says, it isn’t quite square.

And, of course, the irony of BlogNomic drawing a border around it.

I just don’t ‘get’ it.

arrow As seminal as it is ephemeral. For years to come, critics will debate the meaning hidden in “2KZzv”...

arrow as the compression artifacts (which certainly are present) are a most exhilarating component of a supremely minimalist peace.
