Search by Image, Recursively, Transparent PNG, #1 from kingcosmonaut3000 on Vimeo.

Sebastian Schmieg of the Netherlands made the above video by feeding Google’s Image Search a transparent PNG, asking it to find the closest match, taking the top result and feeding that back into the loop 2,951 times. The result is an unpredictable, ever evolving metamorphosis that features a lot of stars and galaxies in its infancy, but eventually blossoms into a cacophonous sea of images with occasional seas of similarity. The images are then turned into a 12fps video with an algorithm. Also it looks really cool.
