Polygons Evolving Into Mona Lisa

Roger Alsing played around with genetic programming and came up with a program that overlays 50 semi-transparent polygons. In each step, the originally random polygon DNA is slightly mutated. Then, it is compared to the Mona Lisa painting, and if it has a higher likeness to it than the previous DNA string, it will overwrite it... and so on, for many rounds. Check out the result for yourself.

On a related note, see the Mutating Pictures experiment here.
