eARTh is my latest work: a Grundgestalt generated by seeds that are random permutations of the strings “eARTh” and “mousiketekne”.
Genotypical selection led to the following strings:
collect.sh \ AheTR AheTR TeRAh ReTAh TRAhe \ eTRhA hTARe RAhTe eTARh AehRT heART hRTeA \ \ ketmeosknuie ueitmkeoekns kteoenkmueis mskntukeeoei teioukmeknse uikmktnseeeo motkuekieesn uteskoniemek \ \ ehART eRAhT heATR eTRAh RThAe eRThA hReAT ARhTe \ \ hRTeA ThRAe ARheT eARhT ehRTA TeARh RAheT ehATR hATeR eRThA ATheR ATeRh \ ueitmkeoekns kteoenkmueis mskntukeeoei teioukmeknse uikmktnseeeo motkuekieesn uteskoniemek \ \ AheTR AheTR TeRAh ReTAh TRAhe \ eTRhA hTARe RAhTe eTARh AehRT heART hRTeA \ \ ketmeosknuie ueitmkeoekns kteoenkmueis mskntukeeoei teioukmeknse uikmktnseeeo motkuekieesn uteskoniemek
The resulting midi file was elaborated with the Evanessence2 soundfonts and with samples of a 1958 Otto Rubner acoustic double bass.
The picture is a G'MIC elaboration of the string “eARTh,” rendered with the Chilanka and Ani font types.

The video is a processing of the NASA image at https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/galex/galex20130110.html, “Computer simulations of the collision between NGC 6872 and IC 4970 reproduce the basic features of the galaxies as we see them today. They indicate that IC 4970's closest encounter occurred 130 million years ago and that the smaller galaxy followed a path (dashed curve) close to the plane of the spiral's disk and in the same direction it rotates.” Credit: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, after C. Horellou (Onsala Space Observatory) and B. Koribalski (ATNF)”
All processing was done via the following veemadge script:
