Ruined Crow

Something about the curve of that not pipe reminded me of the curves in Audubon's birds. This ruined image started out as Audubon's American Crow, 1861.

Ruined Squares

I've been having fun lately generating triangles with Python, as you do. And the other day I stumbled across one of Josef Albers' Homage to the Square. My first thought was, "Wow, the colors." My second thought was, "Those should be triangles."

I went to Google Images and searched for Josef Albers Homage to the Square and picked three at random: Ascending, 1953. Glow, 1966. And Soft Spoken, 1969.

Then I ruined them with computers by turning everything into triangles:

You might want to take a look at some non-ruined versions of Homage to the Square, like Impossibles from 1931 or this one from 1967.
