This was all over the internet a few days ago: A programmer who wrote a small application to evolve works of art using transparent polygons. Of course, just to see if I could, I had to duplicate it myself, though my version is a bit crappy right now. Maybe later…

Of course, none of this is possible because evolution works on random numbers, which cannot possibly create order. According to creationists. So what you’re seeing is just a trick; or maybe a mirage.

Fortunately, you can download Roger Alsing’s source code. Which is better than mine. Still, not bad for my first C# app, eh? ;)
