Hilbert Disco

The Hilbert curve has the interesting property that points local on the plane are likely to be local on the Hilbert curve as well.

The image below is a colored square. Each square is colored in a sequence along the Hilbert curve. This gives the image the nice property that it has many patterns in it, but still sufficiently complex that it isn't just a pattern. It looks a bit random.
