There was a programming competition to program as simple as possible simple software that will use every color in RGB exactly once. NewScientist covered the winner of that competition here:


Here is a video of the process: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/JBk6McexwKg&rel=1&fs=1&hd=1" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/JBk6McexwKg&rel=1&fs=1&hd=1</a>

Basically, the winner has accidentally found a beautiful variation of what looks like diffusion-style images.
There is a vague description of how it works in the above article.

Here is a full-sized image of the result:

It's 2056▓ px, so rather big.

EDIT: The actual competition is, as I could have guessed right away, from Code Golf Stack Exchange:
