Vasarely's artwork is interesting, but I am concerned because a lot of

distracting. The desktop should fade into the background, not draw
attention to itself. Having movement of this type of the screen can be
distracting and disorientating; it can make a user feel dizzy.

I think these are neat but am not 100% that the mechanics would work on
a screen. These kinds of images rely on physical space that we don't
have - we have a flat screen. E.g., here is the intended viewing angle
But change angles and it looks like this:
We don't have angles within the desktop to make an illusion like this
work, as I understand how this works. Part of the illusion is the
juxtaposition of a drawn object with correct shading / lighting /
perspective in a real environment. I suppose we could mimic the effect
by drawing/modeling a 3D like object within a photograph using the same
perspective lines as in the photograph; I can't think of any other way
of acheiving something like this. If you have more concrete ideas on how
this would be possible in the context you're suggesting, I would be
interested to see them.
For the specific idea above, we'd need some theme / ideas / content that
would fall along the lines of the themes we pursue in Fedora's artwork
(generally relating to technology and nature.)
