Full Description

Animated squares of the 216 web safe palette are arranged on a grid. The site visitor clicks on a color. A new page comes up based on the sequence of code for the color selected. The background color for each page is randomly selected from a similiar sequence of code, creating a diverse range of color relationships. The palette narrows in like components through three selections, and then returns the full 216 palette. Each page includes a "counter" which documents the number of times that page has been selected. Created in 2003.
