The author writes:

Image quilting is a method of texture synthesis where a small source image is used to generate larger seamlessly tiling textures. However, when the source image contains highly context sensitive information instead of just generic "leaves" or similar simple patterns, the results can be rather surreal and nightmarish without being obviously wrong at any point. Perfect for that moment when reality and dreams intersect when you're forcibly woken up...

This image shows the sections of the original strip the algorithm chose while tiling:
