So after nearly three months of whiskerino, these are the only things I can think about: beards and photos, beards and photos, beards within photos, photos within beards...


This is a "Droste effect" picture, it is (in theory) an infinite recursive picture. (I say in theory, because in practice it is limited by the resolution of the output image).

It is created using the maths that are behind of one of the Escher drawings (The print gallery). The maths are generally known as a conformal mapping in the complex numbers plane (whatever that means).

These maths are described with detail in these two links:

Image has been created with MathMap plugin for GIMP.

I like it. I've seen an entire flickr set of this type of picture, but it's been so long since I found it I don't think I'll ever find it again.

It's pretty trippy.
