Excelfie is a recently started experiment, where an excel file is used in a new context. It is a simple idea, both conceptually (populate a spreadsheet with numbers that do not actually mean anything but simply perform a graphical representation) and technically:
Voilà, you have an excelfie!
My original wish was to use only numbers (and the empty cell) but most numbers do not represent the variations in the gray scale so well as other characters, so I am using a mix of numbers and signs such as #, % and +.
For the time being, that's all this project is about - but I am willing to explore this idea a bit further.
