Francois Morellet 'tirets' in SVG

The french artist Fran├žois Morellet made a number of paintings called 'Tirets' or 'Dashes' with parallel lines at various angles.

Reconstructed these using SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics).Idea is to be able to run this full screen with the controls optional on mouse over.

Challenge #1 is full screen SVG, can be accomplished using CSS:

html, body { margin:0; padding:0; overflow:hidden }
svg { position:fixed; top:0; left:0; height:100%; width:100%; z-index: -1 }
