Just some stereo fun with fractals :)

"Generative Art" created using the Gumowski-Mira attractor.

Two dimensional "Strange Attractor" visualizations tend to resemble microscopic sea life (diatoms etc).
This is a close-up render of some of the interior details. 

As a final step I created a stereo pair by displacing the image in the horizontal axis with the original render's luminance. I then added some "3D" lighting :)

The image was rendered in "Fractal Lab", an open source WebGL project developed by Tom Beddard (
I'm, on a hiatus from my own art for a few weeks. I've had to leave my beloved computers at home until I'm settled into my new residence in Auckland.  I'll be working as a lecturer at the Media Design School, teaching "3d" computer graphics until the end of the year.  The school's staff is an  amazing collection of artists, film makers, designers, and engineers.  So many brilliant people to learn from...

I work in the Film/Television visual effects industry; have done some teaching, and am currently experimenting with rendering fractals and other kinds of digital art in "real time" using openGL based programs like Tom Beddard's web application "Fractal Lab". I work on Ubuntu Linux workstations, and support free open source software.

I wish I could comment on your work in a technical manner. A lot of it is just awesome and breathtaking and leaves me speechless.

Thanks very much. If you are ever interested in playing with "Generative Art" (fractals and stuff) I can point you to lots of free software and sites that explain how it all works :)
