TITLE: Serpinski Seed/Egg
DEFINITION: Computer Art
CREATOR: Tom Bates
MAIN CATEGORY: Art
ALTERNATIVE CATEGORIES: consciousness, science
RELATIONSHIP TO THE CORE WAVE: What is dark? What is light?
MAIN QUOTE: "I find this image very evocative in many ways. Seed within egg. Recursion. Mystery as to outcome. The void giving birth . . . The fractal interpenetration of dark and light . . . Its creation is a real meeting of science (math) and art, which is one of my favorite things." -- Tom Bates
HIGHLIGHT QUOTES: "It's also pretty trippy turned ‘upside down’ -- strange alien head in a heart shape." -- Tom Bates
HIGHLIGHT RECOMMENDATION: Looking at the image "right side up," I think of the Shofar--the ram's horn--used by Jews in ritual and remembrance of the power of God. The external shapes make me think of the Shofar, and the internal shape--a musical note.
The difference clouds create a moody background that holds--almost entraps--energy. It is a dark and intense energy--viewed from behind a geometric veil. Psyche. The cloaked parts of spirit, mind, and emotion that are reachable but only through a predetermined, well-plotted course.
