While being a functional portfolio of my ongoing work across several creative sectors, I wanted this website itself to be an artistic exploration, juxtaposing a minimalist vs childlike experience that goes beyond soaking in information. It also reflects my personal dueling aesthetics for design tranquility vs nonsensical wonder.
When viewing from a desktop, on the home page, and about page of this website, your mouse becomes like a crayon, drawing on the walls in a home or TV screen (I did that once). Beyond those two pages and the rest of the website, an elegant pattern creates abstract art in real-time, changing and creating a new pattern with every refresh.
Thanks for visiting. - JQ
