Fractal Art and Poetry

I plan to do a livestream of my fractal art on my patreon here. A lot of the creation of fractals involve me thinking about the shapes, colors, and memories that make up the ingredients of a fractal. I use Apophysis 7x as my main software, but have experimented with other fractal software. I have a lot of plug-ins for Apophysis, which is why I prefer it, and I have a bit of code I added myself that helps with rendering.

All of that is behind the scenes, so most of the livestream will be me discussing how fractals work such as the math behind them, why they are often pleasing to the eye, how often they show up in nature, and then the art of me actually crafting one from a preliminary sketch/idea.

Most of my fractal art is accompanied by poetry, so during the livestream, I may be writing lines of poetry as well to accompany the image. This may be influenced by any memories given to me (as I ask all who commission fractals to share a memory and their favorite color scheme and shapes) as well as the color scheme and shapes used.

I haven’t decided on a date yet for the livestream, but it’d have to be in the evenings during the week, or sometime on the weekend durign the afternoon or early evening. Check out the poll at my patreon. It opens to the public on 8/1/19, so others can vote too.

Examples of my fractals:

Below is a series, three fractals that are using the same shapes and color scheme, but I altered the parameters and the math a bit to distort and change the image, allowing a more finer examination of the theme of blossoms and connections. The fractal on the far right is completely on related to the three turquoise blossom series.

Open the door, step inside. Here you find a forest, teeming with animals and birds, which sweeps up the sides of snow-capped mountains. Here in the small pocket of beauty, one finds the essence of my soul. A writer at heart, I delve deep into the finer details of humanity's spirit, and seek to share with others what gems I uncover. I find life exciting and full of interesting surprises, and despite the great pain that often confronts me, I persevere with the joy in my heart still bubbling, and the light of my soul still aflame. There is a time and a place to introspect one's self, but often enough it is best to not look back in regret, but leap forward in the present toward the achievement of one's deepest dreams. I am a wanderer. An explorer. One place cannot contain me for long, but to my friends and family, I remain loyal, for love is not bound by time nor place. Once cultivated and nourished continuously, it binds people together on a journey through the unknown reaches of life.
