The Storm in My Heart by UniversalKinase
The Storm in My Heart
Well.... sometimes the title is accurate. Other times it's just an ocean of foggy apathy. *sigh*
Anyway, I hope you like the fractal.
Created in apophysis
Cretaceous Legacy by UniversalKinase
Cretaceous Legacy
A living dynasty that ruled the surface of the world. The Cretaceous showed new heights in the sophistication of living organisms, and was arguably the pinnacle of biological achievement until that time.
All this was brought to its knees, and ended in fire and dust.
5 Cataclysms, and we're the descendants of the survivors.
4.3 Billion years of history flow through each of our veins. In my darkest moments, I remember this.
If there is one thing that we are good at, as living things, it is surviving.
Is life an overrated phenomena? Perhaps... but if there is no consequence to it, why not believe it to be great? Why not believe that we are the greatest things this universe has ever created?
I have no evidence to refute such a claim, as arbitrary and potentially uninformed as it may be.
Here we are in the Holocene (yes, I said Holocene cuz 12,000 years is not long enough to define a geological epoch) and are we not the legacy of the Cretaceous?

Yesterday I saw a magpie hunt down and brutalize a yellow-jacket. As it crunched down upon the insects head with a decisive peck, I smiled, for the dinosaur I saw before me was as worthy of my respect as its long-dead ancestors.
Anyway.........enough rambling.
I hope you like the fractal.
Created in apophysis
The Musician by UniversalKinase
The Musician
This piece is supposed to be representative.
The green musician creates an ever expanding aura of sound. Sound portrayed as waves and streaks, both flowing and sharp.
Music performance is the most ethereal of art forms. It exists only for a moment, it cannot be seen, but it brings forth emotions like nothing else does. You can tell a measure of how a musician is feeling by how they play. Yes, this expression is also seen in the strokes of a brush, the movement of dancing, or even through the shutter of a lens, but for me, all of these require more thought to tease out the guiding emotions.
Music is an art form that can reverberate in your lungs. You can feel it move through you, and the transfer of expression is just smoother than through most other mediums. This is to its strength most genres, with the notable exception of some country "music" for reasons that should be obvious.
Anyway, enough rambling.
I hope you like the piece.
Created in apophysis
Solar Wind by UniversalKinase
Solar Wind
This was another piece I created for the fundraiser that I mentioned earlier.
The print sold for.... I think $80.
Anyway, I hope you like it.
I used a modified version of the star that is present in Menace in the Rising Sun (see below), but I felt like this was a very different piece at the end of the day.
Menace in the Rising Sun by UniversalKinase
~created from 3 apophysis fractals that I stitched together in psp8.


Journal Entry: Thu Dec 4, 2014, 12:38 AM
I've never been good at remembering the positive things in life.
I've focused far too much attention on every mistake I've ever made, every failure and every regret.
It's not a useful thing to do.

Thinking on mistakes briefly is important to avoid repeating them.
Thinking on them too much will lead you to avoid any situation where the previous outcome might possibly come to pass again.
The latter of those is just silly. We cannot know the future, and it is stifling to be terrified of things that we have little control over.

There is no mind so great that it cannot be overthrown by loss and fear.
Yet, we are each the architects of our own prisons, and our outlook on any situation governs a large percentage of our perceived reality.

I say the following more to myself than anyone else:
Do not lock all the doors around you just because they might have something bad behind them.
Life is not about playing it safe. Life is a fire that can engulf anything it touches. Sure, you can lock it up in a lantern and live life in a glass cage, but then you'll never know the beauty and exhilaration of running free and devouring every experience imaginable.
If all of us are flames, then we burn as hot, as bright, as big and as long as we chose to. Well, for the most part. The important thing is to believe that you have no limits, for then the prison you've built around yourself will cease to be.

Sometimes looking inward can feel like running through a forest of knives, but it doesn't have to be. Selective information filters are not an artificial construct, but rather an innate aspect of our biology. It is ironic that for all our technology and all our combined experience, we aren't really much better at seeing who we are than we ever were before.

Meh, I'm starting to ramble, so I'd better call the journal here.
Best wishes to you all this holiday season.

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 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.
