By combining and layering Eno's hand-made slides, the package is claimed to generate 77 million different artworks automatically. Paintings continuously transform and change as new slides fade in and others fade away. It's like ambient music for the eyes.
I'm guessing that a fair number of the 77 million paintings are almost indistinguishable, differing only slightly in colour or fade levels. That's not to say that there aren't plenty of images: even though one design motif has repeated in the time I've been using the software, I haven't noticed any similar 'paintings'. You're extremely unlikely to see anything that closely resembles the following pictures anywhere else.
