Aleatory Art: Money Patterns

Money Pattern With Grandma On The Phone
Geometrical minimalism and random design.

This visual experiment is about randomness in art, inspired mainly by Barrettism and what it brings. It’s titled Money Patterns With Grandma On The Phone, and it was made with the help of a device that I created, called My-Ching.

Phony money lays down flat in its metal rest. I like the fall that brings me too, things to make your mind bright and gay. Bringing every girl and boy baskets full of Eastern joy.

Corinthian Columns In Italy

Altare Della Patria: White Marble And Corinthian Columns
Neo-Classical photography from The Eternal City of Rome.

One more shot of the Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland), a.k.a. Il Vittoriano, or Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II (National Monument to Victor Emmanuel II), the monumental masterpiece designed by Italian architect Giuseppe Sacconi. This picture is a close-up of the main porch and its columns, surmounted by sixteen statues, an allegorical depiction for each region of Italy (at the time the complex was built they were not yet twenty). Each statue was sculpted by a different sculptor, mostly native of the related region.
The incredible amount of details, decorations, and bas-reliefs, as well as the amazing white marble of this monumental complex, remind the ancient majesty of the Roman Empire and its classical architecture.

Here goes another view of the Altare della Patria (Altar of the Fatherland), also known as Il Vittoriano, the huge monument designed by Italian architect Giuseppe Sacconi in honour of Vittorio Emanuele II di Savoia (Victor Emmanuel), located between Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline Hill.
This vertical photo shows the pink sky of a beautiful Roman sunset with its classical architecture and a glimpse of the Corinthian columns and horses from the quadriga related to the goddess Victoria.
