# Does this code make sense? No, not really. But wow is this demo nice!

When it comes to fitting amazing creations into the smallest amount of code possible, I don’t think there are any better than Mathieu ‘p01’ Henri… And his most recent sketch, Night Train, is no exception.

NIGHT TRAIN

The scene, featuring a train rolling through a generative field dotted with grass and some windy trees, is really a mind blower… Especially considering the formula generating it consists of 242 characters, fitting inside the tweet!

For real though, what is that emoji doing in there?

But How?
