Elixir generates a random color and then draws from a list of over a thousand words to create an adjective-noun name. The results are colors with names that are humorous, surprising, and sometimes even a bit crude.
The most enjoyable aspect of the project is just how often the names seem to make sense. Many combinations bring forth vivid feelings and experiences as we relate them to our own experiences.
Elixir creates single color images, 3-color complimentary pallets, and 3-5 column color gradients.
The program posts automatically to this Facebook page, every eight hours.
In the distant future, we would like to produce a coffee table book with the images.
