Don't know what the estate of that great abstract expressionist, Jackson Pollock, is going to say about this site . It's designed by Miltos Manetas, that Greek multimedia artist currently working in north London. It's billed as as being based on an original design by Stamen which I think is Stamen, the ace San Francisco interactive studio. So to the site. As soon as you move your cursor you realise you're already in. And totally immersed in finding out how it all goes.

You first of all think you might have a Gerald Scarfe line, you know the one you get with a sharp but flexible pen nib which gets thicker the harder you press, and splutters little inkdrops. Stop for an instant and you suddenly get a great big blob. You instinctively click and the line changes colour to, maybe blue. And you're off again trying to control the line and failing and clicking at the inevitable blob and changing colour again and off. Then you see why it's called Jackson Pollock.
