### Abstract

Here are some experiments (work-in-progress) with randomized circle packings. The algorithm is deceptively simple: Start with an initial circle and repeatedly choose a point, according to some algorithm, inside of the initial circle and add the largest circle possible having this point as its center. By constraining the way the points are chosen, a variety of different figures emerges. *How many circles are enclosing the point? What is the angle of the point? How far from the center is the point?* If points are only allowed to be added given that certain properties are satisfied, we obtain different visual effects.
