Recursive Google Image Search Is Mindflippingly Nuts

By Jesus Diaz on at

As you may know, you can search for photos by dropping a picture on Google Images. It shows you images that are equal or similar to yours. This is what happens when you feed one search with the result of the previous search. 2,951 times.

Dutch smartperson Sebastian Schmieg thought about doing exactly that, starting with a transparent 400 × 225-pixel PNG image. He put all the 2,951 resulting images on this video. You must watch it: it goes from space to ffffffffffffuuuuuuuu in four minutes. [Vimeo via Matt Biddulph via Kottke]
