Dutch graphic designer Sam van Doorn is behind STYN, a pinball-based art project. STYN essentially turns the frantic game of reflexes that is pinball into a canvas for creating art, using an ink-coated ball to create crazy illustrations.

The idea that games can be used as mediums to create art is nothing new. However, most artists don't usually use the game or the game machine itself to create the art. Van Doorn eschews these conventions in STYN, and the result is a series of drawings that perfectly reflect the fast-paced nature of a game of pinball. While all of these pieces seem perfectly random, the most intricate ones were actually created by the most skilled players, according to Sam van Doorn.
