The art of using a fork to nail a nail on a wall... Why use a simple SVG while you can do a much harder work using CSS?

It's about talent, not the tool.

I agree to some extent, SVG was indeed designed for vector graphics, and certainly has interoperability with JS and html due to its XML nature, thus making it the perfect way to go for non raster works of art. You are not wrong.
But at the same time you have to admit this is impressive, I know I would go the easy route because that is what my job entails. Do this in hand written GLSL and im sure you might get the same buzz, its not easy and thats why people do it for funzies.

Yes, God forbid someone who enjoys CSS push herself with more in depth projects...

Let's all just do the easy way.

It's about experimenting and using a medium that you enjoy. In the same way an artist might choose charcoal over watercolour. Ellie enjoys using CSS to create art.
