Hana is a dream about flowers for computers.
The idea is that no aspect of creating the flowers is hidden from the computers, everything is created in code and no bitmaps are used that the computer has not seen to the creation of itself, letting the computer "think" through every step.
The only concession to the concept I've consciously made in this version is a bitmap with the text "Hana, by Andreas Müller", a string of which is also included in the code (and outputted to the console so as to not be optimized away by the compiler).
