To most people, numbers on a page and mathematic equations can evoke anxiety and headache or induce calmness and comfort. To very few, however, do algorithms and geometry equate to a detailed and beautiful beginning to art. George Thomson is a 23 year-old student from the United Kingdom who takes great pride and spends countless hours producing art from numbers, or fractal art. George says that for him the images produced by the numerous calculations required represent the beauty and wonders of the universe.
Due to the size produced, the fractal art pieces he creates are perfect for replication as canvas prints. Each piece, as unique as the universe in which it reflects, Thomson says one image can take about 72 hours to produce. The millions of calculations result in peaceful, yet stimulating images, which produce a final picture similar to that of a nebula or what you might see when peering down through a microscope. Thomson’s computer generated fractal art pieces are being shared and sold by him for the first time ever. Each fractal art piece is its own story of uniqueness, color, and light, produced by geometric patterns and shapes.
Tackling the waste produced by blemished guitars deemed unfit for retail, German artist Carina Ostermayer has applied a unique, sustainable twist with the minimalist and well-crafted Guitar Ear-O headphones.
Constructed using recycled guitar pieces, the Ear-O is a new way for old instruments to live in a new body, but with the same function: to sound and play music.
Happy Birthday Gerhard Richter! The famed German artist celebrated his 82nd over the weekend.
It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.
The difference between my darkness and your darkness is that I can look at my own badness in the face and accept its existence while you are busy covering your mirror with a white linen sheet. The difference between my sins and your sins is that when I sin I know I’m sinning while you have actually fallen prey to your own fabricated illusions.
