Holy Georgia O'Keefe, Batman! Eros ex Mathematica is a series of pictures that are not safe to view at work. Yet the description on the website insists:
The images in this room are created entirely from mathematical algorithms. If you find them offensive in any way, all I can say is that beauty (or obscenity) is in this case most certainly in the eye of the beholder.
Indeed, most of the images don't look like actual people. But something in the brain must use an algorithm similar to the one that produced these images to recognize things as looking fleshy.
