We describe an interactive art that can facilitate visual dialogues with a user and reveal the user's compositional proclivity. The system invites the user for a visual dialogue, initially presenting two compositions in distinct styles. Then, the user "converses" with the system by responding. As the interactions continue, the user starts to experience a tendency evolving in the compositions-much the same way as in a dialogue between two people. Throughout the interactions, the evolutionary process brings out a certain sense of self-reflection to the user. The product of the dialogue is an experience in self-reflection in visual proclivity. I3 was exhibited to the public in two international art forums.
