Island of Dr. Voroni

Jun 02, 2007 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

The Anguish of Fractals I’m not sure what a Voroni diagram actually is, but I like to look at them. Honestly, it’s refreshing sometimes to work with something other than fractals. Fractals have this intense, endless quality to them that sometimes gives me vertigo. I just want to work with something simple like these “voronic” […]

Das Kafig des Dr. Caligari

The cages of Dr. Caligari. No, I haven’t seen the movie. I wish I could have. I’ve wanted to see this movie for a long time, but all I’ve managed to see is some stills from it, and they look great. Anyhow, I think Dr. Caligari does something bad, and there’s a lot of shadowy […]

The secret home of garlic

One of the most exciting experiences of my life was taking apart a plastic model kit of the Apollo Command Module built by my brother a few years previously. He must have followed the instructions perfectly because as I began to move through each of the compartments of the model (sometimes with a pair of […]

De la Huerta

Spanish isn’t one of my strong points, but I think it means from the Huerta. Huerta being the orange orchards (or something very similar) that were started by the Moors in parts of Spain and have continued on (I think) to this day. Actually, all I know is what I saw while looking out the […]

A Series of Radishes

Apr 29, 2007 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

I’ve always liked the collection or series genre. A series of four pictures contains an extra, fifth thing. The mystery of animation is that there is actually no movement, just a series of still images. Movement is the collective quality of the individual images which disappears when they are separated. Collection, or association, creates a […]

Terraform – The Digital Side of the Moon

My latest digital place to hang out began with installing Ubuntu Linux on my zippy new computer. It was a big step for me because my new computer has Windows Xp on it, and although I have a valid license, I bought the computer used and in the event I ever had to reinstall Windows […]

Beautiful Empty Image

Apr 22, 2007 - Uncategorized - 0 Comments - Standard

I think one’s mind needs time to grow before they can relate to some of the higher aims of art. Lately I’ve been sensing the emptiness of simply “nice” looking fractal images. It’s strange because I’ve always liked the pretty, eye-candy fractals and found that sub-genre quite inspiring. My recent return to using Xaos in […]
