about this prism

Sliced Drawing is an exercise in fusing two unrelated concepts. Your task is to draw anything that comes to mind, and then reconstruct the drawing using an external trigger. You are free to take it anywhere you like, even to extreme places that don’t make sense. In other words, your goal is to have fun and not necessarily produce a technically good drawing. However, no matter what you do, you should use the Seed as an inspiration.

Try this game with several drawings and different cutting techniques: smaller pieces, larger pieces, straight cutting lines or curved ones — each will result in different outcomes. Try them all!
