Invaders are friendly expressions of numerical magnitude. Using only 15 bits, a mirror, and a little patience, we can render 32,768 unique instances of them.

Arrangement of invaders is based on a recursive fractal method. Given a region, an invader is placed within a random percentage of it. The process is then repeated for the remaining spaces until the regions become indistinguishably small.
