I've never seen anything similar. I guess it is sort of "piecewise
Turbulence" gluing together analog chunks into discrete segments.
A rectangle filled with turbulence (chained with some other things to make
it glyph-y) is replicated upward with its numOctaves and seed being
randomized as it is replicated. The result is a very polygonal sort of
The unrandomized unreplicated version can be seen at
so you can see where the chunks of the new ones came together.
