Horror vacuiJun 11 2008

Any Wikipedia entry that references Adolf Wolfli is a friend of mine. Horror vacui:

Horror vacui is the filling of the entire surface of an artwork with ornamental details, figures, shapes, lines and anything else the artist might envision. It may be considered the opposite of minimalism.

(More of my friends here, apparently.)
