I saw this diy on Design*Sponge the other day and it really got my creative spark going. I like the map idea, but how cool would it be if your shoved the slats together first and painted an original work of art like a neat portrait or landscape before your separated it slightly.
Or even better, get a print of one of your favorite works of art blown up extra large and paste it to the boards before separating them. I think my photograph "Holding" would be a great candidate for a slatted format. You'd still see the image, but it would be slightly abstracted.
