Dreamlines is a beautiful image generation website that takes a search query, passes it to Google Images and then processes relevant pictures to draw a "dream-like" progression. The interesting thing, from my perspective, is how the images are processed - a graphic file provides the template "environment" for a group of interacting particles, or agents, which interact in a non-linear fashion to generate an emergent whole (more on this paradigm here).

I'm not sure about the waffle about the internet "dreaming", but it does generate a lovely series of images (I tried DNA and bacteria, both with nice results).

The site does require Flash and Java.

Hi, I'm Craig David, however, this stems from earlier problems, where this site, fails to co-operate, with my r'n'b lifestyle. Plus the site is broken.

Holy. Crap.

Yes, I suspect that the site's being hammered due to it being listed on Metafilter - that might be the problem.
