Paint with all the Colors of the Wind by UniversalKinase
Paint with all the Colors of the Wind
I have some mixed feelings about this piece. I made it a while back but didn't want to submit it by itself, so.... I waited. Anyway, I do hope you like it, even though I'm not sure how well I ended up tying the elements that make up the fractal together.

Parkour to the Death by UniversalKinase
Parkour to the Death
This was a fun piece to make. I hope you like it.
To those of you who don't know what parkour is.... google it, because you're missing out.

Today, I felt alive. I came up with 3 entire systems of genome manipulation using CRISPR/Cas9 gene drives that may or may not work, and also might be entirely new ideas. I spent a solid hour pacing back and forth throwing wild ideas at a metaphorical dartboard and then trying to vet each of them for feasibility and utility.

When I encountered a dead end, and was on the verge of conceding that what I wanted might not be possible, I would just think "bullshit, just because something isn't obvious, doesn't make it impossible; try harder."

To those of you who don't know what a gene drive is... let's just say that it is an incredibly powerful and dangerous technique for altering the genetics of an entire population of organisms. I work on plants for research purposes, and I do not advocate the use of any technology like this for any applications that haven't been thoroughly checked and approved for safety concerns. In fact, I think using this technology in open ecosystems might not be the best idea. However, the potential it has in a controlled setting is astounding, and if it can be effectively deactivated before it leaves that setting, then perhaps we've found our most useful tool yet.

Anyway, art, right... 
I've been making more fractals lately, and haven't submitted them all yet.
I feel like my standards and understanding of how to make interesting fractals in apophysis continue to improve. Hopefully those of you who watch me aren't disappointed with my work.
There is a short story that I started years ago that I want to finish and submit soon.

For a year and a half, I felt like my upcoming prelims were strangling the life out of me. There were times where I couldn't even remember what it felt like to be happy. Now that I've passed them, I feel like a noose has been taken off of my neck, like a burlap sack has been cast off my head, and I can finally see and breathe again.

I want things again. No, not material things, but I have actual goals again. I remember now why I got into this business, and I swear that I will do what I can to have a positive impact on the world.
Peace be upon all of you, and may stars light the paths you walk.

Just a tweak of an old flame I made. It's nothing really special, but I thought it was interesting enough to submit.
Anyway, I hope you like it.

The Storm in My Heart by UniversalKinase

Well.... sometimes the title is accurate. Other times it's just an ocean of foggy apathy. *sigh*
Anyway, I hope you like the fractal.

As a 23-year old Ph.D. student, there are many things in this world that I have yet to learn. I tend to take tasks very seriously, and the creation of art is important to me.

I began making fractal art back in 2006, shortly after I joined DA. Since that time, I have competed in a number of fractal contests and won several. My techniques vary significantly from some that you see among other fractal artists. I have remained on the outskirts of the community, which has in some ways stunted my growth as an artist, but simultaneously challenged me to develop my own techniques and gain a better understanding of the underlying mathematical principals that govern fractals. However, I have learned that it doesn't matter how much time you spend on techniques if you don't put your soul into the art you're making. It doesn't matter what median it is, without passion all you get is a hollow image, devoid of feeling.

While most of my art consists of fractals, I love to write, and I value my prose and poetry just as highly as my best fractals.

I am always eager to help people out, so if you have any questions about how I make my art, or if you would like me to make something for you, feel free to ask. B-)

Art

Art is the ultimate expression of the mind and soul. Within all of us lies the omnipresent potential to find peace, agony, joy and ire in all walks of life. How we choose to percieve situations is what defines us as individuals, and how we react is the ultimate test of our character.

The community on DeviantArt is truly incredible because of the amazing people who devote vast amounts of time and energy to make it so. Always remember to be respectful towards others and their art, for a stray callous word against something of extreme individual importance can cause far more torment than intended.

Your beautiful fractals are just naturals on some on these manipulations
