Generate Random Art Projects with ‘What the F*** is My Art Project?’

WTF Is My Art ProjectNeed an art project fast but don’t have any ideas? Check out “What the Fuck is My Art Project?” — a parody site that randomly generates art project ideas, possibly from the same team that produced “What the Fuck is My Brief?” (although that’s unconfirmed at the moment).

Based around the idea that “most of the popular crap on the Internet is just rehashed popular and obscure cultural and artistic references mashed together,” the site is built around an algorithm that does exactly that. Leading to such gold as a “Cyberpunk Darth Vader Board Game,” “Victorian Big Lebowski Mobile App,” “Grunge Wonder Years Bedtime Story” and of course “Neo Realist Weird Al Fanfic,” the site parodies Internet culture while producing some ideas that, in a bizarre kind of way, could actually be pretty cool (I’m looking at you, “Grunge Wonder Years Bedtime Story”). The site seems to have enough information programmed into it to avoid repeating suggestions for some time, so most people will never see the same thing twice, which is too often a problem with these types of projects. Give the site a try for yourself and you may just wind up on Laughing Squid or the front page of Reddit.
