Algorithmic and Generative Art

"GoogleSynth uses the Google Image Search thingy to randomly grab two images as the 'input' and 'target' images for the algorithm. Once it has two images it applies the algorithm with the parameters set by the user and produces a new image based on them. The results vary wildly, often the output is a total mess, but it creates some cool looking stuff now and then (depending on your definition of 'cool')." (For Windows and Mac OSX.)

This is a really neat program. I've been toying with it for a few weeks now, and had meant to post it, but blanked.

A nice, fast processor is very much suggested.
