- Diamond Dorje
2005 - 24" square Chromira print of an artifact of computation.
The horse and rider from Eadweard Muybridge's movie race down the level sets of the Mandelbrot set, followed by Julia edges. The interior of the Mandelbrot set contains a Julia set resembling a Dorje. The image hangs as a Prayer flag.
- Welcome back
2009 - artifact of computation, displayed across 3 LCD monitors.
Four Mandelbrot sets nested by using the next Mandelbrot set as the escape test, coloured according to each Mandelbrot calculation's iteration count and final z coordinate. Each nesting level is rotated by the same incremental angle, resulting in many spirals.
2009 - Colour laser print of an artifact of computation.
Zoetrope strip, work in progress.
This series of zoetrope strips (only one is shown here) shows another of Eadweard Muybridge's horse and rider galloping past Tibetan prayer flags which flow in the level sets of morphing Julia set projections.
- Black Combs
2007 - 20"x13.5" Chromira print of some artifacts of computation.
These three images were rendered in UltraFractal using a custom formula. The lines traversing the image are a result of the escape test fractal's edge extending inside the traditional escape test, the circle of radius 2 centred at (0+0i).
2002 - 24"x30" Durst Lambda B&W print of photomosaic from B&W 35mm negatives.
