Original art, produced through a fusion of digital images and flame fractals.

First Series - June 2005

Tranquility Vase

Tranquility Vase

A whimsical title for a piece which speaks for itself. In this image, the flame fractal has effectively erased the source photograph texture, keeping only soft color tones from it.

Print #1 of 20 was auctioned to benefit the Epilepsy Foundation.

Sold to Ken Thoma for an undisclosed amount.

On behalf of the Epilepsy Foundation, thank you Ken!

Eolian Woodah

Eolian Woodah

Eolian refers to deposits which are arranged by the wind, much as these images are formed by the flame fractal which rearranges the photo montage. Woodah is an aboriginal term for a wooden club, and was at one time mistaken as a synonym for boomerang. The photo montage for this image includes finished honey oak, mahogany, and cherry? from a Pathe' Victrola.



Horn Rings

Horn Rings

Another piece where the original image has been thoroughly rearranged by the fractal. Fine texture permeates the flowing quadrilaterally symmetric image.

Clicking on the image will show a full resolution detail.

Passage to Dalocodu

Passage to Dalocodu

Images of stained glass and mahogany contribute their colors and textures to this folded liquid shape.



Second Series - November 2005

Modiolus San Onofre

Modiolus San Onofre

Horse mussel and a breaking wave formed like a spiral shell.

Eventide Pommel

Eventide Pommel

Hues of a brilliant sunset were used as the basis for the striking contrasts in this image.

Code Twist

Code Twist

Snippets of the actual program which generated the image appear within the image itself.

Martian Wisp and Martian Wisp 2

Colors taken from an image of the red planet - shapes are unstable chaotic oscillators with a large range relative to their randomness. Hints of the classic Lorenz attractor are showing, which is remarkable for these one dimensional series to imitate a three dimensional form.

Magic Lamp

Magic Lamp

Desert Djinni smoke formed into a surrealistic impression of an oil lamp.

Funnel Bowl

Funnel Bowl

A self contined shape, with a vortex and rippled outer bowl, spinning the texture of a rocky pillar into another form.

Misty Mountain

Misty Mountain

Images from Cheaha (Native American for "a high place") on a morning when the clouds were lower than the land - which happens commonly there.

Neopolitan Convolution

Neopolitan Convolution

My toddler's first ice-cream cone is re-shaped to an abstract form.

Proof

Proof

A working title which has stuck... Rich colors and a double loop shape that re-forms the textures of the source photograph, while preserving streaks of the original.

Hat Trance

Hat Trance

Impression of a comical 15 gallon Stetson, formed with two transformations of a desert cliff overlaid on each other.

Vitreus Spring

Vitreous Spring

The blue spring photograph from which this was taken had no waves - the fractal transformation has brought chaotic ripples and flows to the tranquil water.

Sylvan Flow

Sylvan Flow

Photo from the bottom of a very old sink-hole, reformed into a flowing texture of leaves and other forms.


Third Series - February 2006

Siesta Strand

Siesta Strand

A kaliedoscope view of a rocky shoreline is warped by chaotic wavy patterns.

Biscayne Lounge

Biscayne Lounge

A cozy tropical room in a comfortable chair under a palm tree.

Atlantic Flask

Atlantic Flask

An otherwise calm ocean being swirled and bottled, with difficulty.

Surging Breaker

Surging Breaker

Planetary rings, dynamic self-similarity, and distinct coloration define this complex, yet ordered chaotic oscillation.
