When she's mixed art and code before, Schiffer's colleagues have dismissed her work as trivial. But Vart has generated some interesting feedback from other programmers. In the case of her Mondrian generator, others shared their programs also inspired by Mondrian.
Not every artist is as easy to code, such as American impressionist Mary Cassatt. Schiffer found that Cassatt's work, which features portraits with blended and overlapping colors, challenging. But Schiffer did manage to build a tool that sketches in Cassatt's style based on user-uploaded photos. The tool is fascinating to play with, even though it's still in development. Like an art student sketching at a museum, Schiffer is still learning.
