Really beautiful stuff. It's nice to see digital waste being recycled into art.

Yes, beautiful stuff.
Reminds me of this.

I don't understand how it works, but these are really pretty, esp. the architecture one.

Wow, that's awesome. Completely over my head, but still awesome.

Yeah, kinda cool looking, but they don't really have any connection to spam. Its impossible to know whether plants generated from, say, the distribution of raindrops on a grid would look distinguishable from these.

See also the Swedish artist Gunilla Klingberg. She makes large, kaleidoscopic, vaguely seventies-like patterns, sometimes filling an entire room. When you look closely, you see that they're all made of dirty little corporate logos.

Zoinks: Todd Arsenault's paintings reminds me of Cornelia Parker's Cold dark matter: an exploded view.

Ooooooh yeah, thanks, Termite. Way cool. I am sending Todd the links to that and the original post - sure to enjoy. And Gunilla Klingberg reminds me a bit of this. Mainly just the cubes and detail once you take a closer look.
(Oh, and HA! Good luck, magpie!)
