When I visited Sia in Amsterdam this summer, I had lots of time to browse her big collection of interior design magazines, and one of the images I found has been haunting me ever since. It is this one, of Dutch designer Nienke Sybrandy's tree patterned curtains.
Sure, tree silhouettes is nothing new, but this one is different. Look closer, and you will see that it is made up of this totally nerdy ASCII art! (That is short for American Standard Code for Information Interchange, and means the picture is made of numbers and letters, a method that was commonly used before computers could show real graphics.)
