Try being Jackson Pollack for a change

Jackson Pollack was an American abstract-expressionist whose paint dribbles have become icons to the modern art world. Stand in front of one of his paintings at MOMA sometime and you can still feel the man's rages and furies even though he's been dead for 52 years. His work's exhausting, really. But now, thanks to the power of the Internet, you can try your hand at his now-famous painting method. Well, sort of anyway. You can't smear these or grind glass and cigarette ashes into them.

Go to this website, Jackson Pollack.org, and your cursor will turn into one of Pollack's dripping brushes and your screen a blank canvas, ready for an assault. Got a couple of minutes or a couple of hours to kill? Check it out!
