I’ve written a program that randomly selects photos from my collection and then combines them with a random opacity and blending mode. Generally, I generate 5,000 random combinations then manually sort though them and select my favorites. About 1 in 150 make the cut.
The following photos were randomly combined and mixed to create interesting new art. I like to think of this as "Computer Assisted Art".
I’ve published my most recent gallery here: 4volt.com/art/, the images in this post are from there, as well as part of my ImageBook 2008 printed book (also available as PDF) that I'm giving away as a contest this week, all you have to do to enter is leave a comment.
I've posted the PSRandom program, you'll need: Windows, Photoshop CS3 or CS4, and .NET. Give it a try and see what you think. http://4volt.com/projects/PSCombine/.
