Italy - Venice
Five days in Venice and nearby Vicenza.
An experiment in what I think of as "codec bending". Take an image, and randomly flip bits in the image file, and see what comes out.
The first 70 images were flipping bits in a JPEG file, the last 30 in a GIF file. Images that don't render are not included. Sometimes I flipped 32 bits, sometimes 128; you can tell by how "chopped up" the image is.

This time our victim is some sort of flavored Calistoga water. But the perils of the freezer and the curious physics of expanding water prove to be too much for our hero.

Evolutionary Mathematical Art
I used to have a program running on the old mahlen.org site that let you create images from math formulas and pick mutations of them. It was inspired by the Blind Watchmaker program. These are some of the best images that came from that program.
