I stumbled across this neat little program called Wordle that creates word clouds from words that you type in, from a blog, blog feed, or any other web page that has an Atom or RSS feed or a del.icio.us user name.
You can tweak position, size, colour, and backgrounds to achieve the effect you want. I played with a few options, the black background contained words which I provided, the other cloud came automatically generated from my blog feed.
What crossed my mind is that you could almost use it as a unique artist statement, especially if you fine tuned it using words that relate to a body of work or direction you are taking artistically.
What words describe your art?
