RandScape began as a programming experiment, and unexpectedly produced intriguing images. The original informal write-up became an article, which was subsequently published in Artificial Life Journal, available as a pdf file. Unfortunately, the graphic reproduction was atrocious, but all the originals are available in the article.

The picture below graces the cover of Alife volume 9. A number of RandScape outputs were used to generate an artwork .
