This spiritual successor to Cocktail Typer features 1000 plastic dice that animate between different colours to paint pictures. Photographed on our meeting room floor, the website allows users to type their Twitter usernames and see their profile pictures painted with dice. The end result can then be saved as a new Twitter profile picture or Tweeted to followers as a unique URL.

A screenshot of the website as it first loads. Note that the title “@DICEPAINTER” doubles as the text entry for typing Twitter names into the site.

Dice holder

We spent a day constructing this dice holder, using plastic tile spacers to keep the dice in place for the shoot.


We raided our board game boxes and toy shelves for props for the shoot.
