The Complete (Fake) Spot Paintings
Enjoy ersatz Damien Hirst paintings from the comfort of your own home. Inspired by the images from this MetaFilter post, you can pretend you're in a gallery without the travel or admittance fees.

Clever concept. I can pretend I'm in a gallery, but I still can't quite bring myself to pretend to like Damien Hirst.

I'll admit to having a full set of the dots skate decks he "made" for Supreme, so this warms the cockles of my heart.

Ways to improve I considered:
Sound of footsteps, rustling and coughing.
Unique IDs for paintings, so you can share them.
Different shapes -- in the news reports I've seen circles and rotated squares.

If anyone is interested in working on the code, send me a message.

This is great; the silhouettes really make the piece. I like the idea of having the other shaped paintings.
