New batch of 3d Fractals

Gnarled 3d Fractal by Phidelity

Gnarls

Not as in Barkley but as in gnarled. The color is my favorite part. This and the image below are colored versions of a series Im working on (Click here to see the series)

Another Robo Snail?

Sure, you can never have too many. Click to view the hi-res

 

Intensities in 10 cities

Intensities in Ten Cities

This is a remix of the Sierpinski buildings that are now included in Xenodream 2.0 thanks to Garth and Dirk. To create this ethereal image I zoomed in quite a bit and clicked render. I waited two days on this one. The haze comes from the cloud/haze overlay. Be sure to click to see the full detail.

 

Space Junk

Space Junk 5

Another patently ridiculously long render. Its not really complete as there are still some holes here and there. I gave up on this after two days. This is another in the series of stacking metamorphs by way of extending and freeing a holon to get a total of 4 stackable metamorphs.

 

Darkest Night

This is the last thing you see before it attaches itself to your face.

 

SIGGRAPH Submission

Inspired by encouragement from Fluid Dynamicist and all around awesome guy Mark Stock I’ve decided to submit an entry into SIGGRAPH. I am planning a series of simple very high resolution 3d fractals totally devoid of color to focus on the details. If not SIGGRAPH I’ve been planning on doing something like this for years anyways. Maybe Ill give a test run at a gallery here in Portland.

These images are all variations of the same seed image – I plan to connect them all and show my artistic process of mutation and permutation which works on the of continual refinement of and honing in on the concept which is ever changing. This particular batch focuses on the Z-axis depth of the main shape (holon) that is repeating through out the structure. By adjusting this I am able to bring out specific form through all the pieces. Anyways enough geeky jibber jabber here are the images

If theres less than 15 images here this post is incomplete and Ill be updating it!! Stay Tuned

Don’t do drugs kids.

Cyriak has a new video up called moo. The recipe calls for a handful of cows, psychedelics by the shovelful, a smattering of fractals and alien intervention.

 

Here are a few of his other works including the Begging Frankie Vallie video remix

 

And his megamix of animations

VJ Loops – Multidimensionality Two

I’ve been spending some time exploring the animation feature of Xenodream so I decided I would create seamless video loops at the same time and offer them with a Creative Commons License for my VJ and video friends.

This one owes a special thanks to Richard Schenk for the inspiration provided in his Xenoship XEP with the simple but elegant one holon .boxed constructor and Wyrl metamorph. This is the second of a series of these things as I have a project in mind for them. My favorite so far.

This transparent animation reminds me of something my friend Xavi would draw. This is the first of a series of these things as I have a project in mind for them. I’ll post on the blog

VJ Loops – Moiré pattern Videos

Ever since I was a little kid Ive been fascinated with Moiré patterns and the resulting Twilight Zone effect that occurs when you have two similar patterns overlaid with slight differences. You see this in fences, screens, and fine sheer fabrics. I’ve been playing with creating this effect from scratch in After Effects for a little while now and decided to share my findings.
The first is the most recent utilizing some new After Effects FX – Mainly Turbulence Displace, Its almost like it was made for this sort of thing. This is not a seamless loop, sorry.

The second is the same set up as the first with different settings this one is decidedly more crazy and spastic

This last video is the first one I created tweaking at least 7 different parameters at once – its a little fuzzy but there are moments, especially the end.

VJ Loops – Self Perpetuated Crumpling

I’ve been spending some time exploring the animation feature of Xenodream so I decided I would create seamless video loops at the same time and offer them with a Creative Commons License for my VJ and video friends.

This loop is the classic Z Plane at 4% transparency getting all crumpled up with the Styro metamorph at various settings. Much credit due to Panny Brawley for sharing her blooming shell XEP awhile ago which is at heart the inspiration for this animation. I still haven’t suceeded in matching the beauty of Blooming Shell however =)

VJ Loops – Unwavering

Rendering these animations is more or less a pot shot in the dark. Its very hard to tell what sort of motion an animation will have until after the last frame is finished rendering. This one looked great as a still but I was expecting a little more from it as animation (You’ve failed me ani.. im so disappointed in you) I may revisit this one in the future as I see some great potential here. – Let me know what you think. This one is a transparent Z plane twirling in on itself. Want the XEP files for this animation? here ya go.

VJ Loops – Vortexial Amplitude

I’ve been spending some time exploring the animation feature of Xenodream so I decided I would create seamless video loops at the same time and offer them with a Creative Commons License for my VJ and video friends.

This loop is a Z Plane constructor with a Vortices metamorph on top of that. This is the second render I did of this because the first moved a little too fast for my tastes. I plan on exploring the Vortices Metamorph more in the future. To be kept up to date sign up for my rss feed or join the newsletter.

This version was a little too intense for my tastes. This video file ends where it starts and loops seamlessly. Ive also looped it in the player below. Enjoy and leave comments below.

VJ Loops – Transparent Holeball

I’ve been spending some time exploring the animation feature of Xenodream so I decided I would create seamless video loops at the same time and offer these up with a Creative Commons License for my VJ and video friends.

This loop is a .balled constructor with a Holes-Z metamorph stacked on top and rendered with a 4% transparency. It’s my second attempt at rendering an animation with transparency which is trickier than it sounds. I haven’t seen any other transparent animations from the XD yahoo group so this might constitute the first Transparent 3D Fractal animation in the wilds of the internet. Three cheers for grasping at straws! The video below is looped. Enjoy and leave comments!
