Thinking of producing images, how about some procedurally generated patterns? Not trivial ones like stripes or blocks (so 80’s) but surely some clever graphics students can make pretty swirly textures from a few lines of code, then we generate the bitmap at the size wanted, when wanted. Could even animate them for that DrWho/Blake’s 7/Star Trek feel
