Photographic Animated Gifs

Here’s are some animated gifs I made from video and photos I created. Nature is a great inspiration to me, as I think it is to all of us. We enjoy the outdoors in many ways. I enjoy it by appreciating nature’s detail.

Origami Mind

Origami Mind

This week, I’ve been exploring symmetries and folding. I’ve implemented a technique for folding images back on themselves in an organic way. I was going to create a quick abstract video which uses this technique, but this piece unfolded and evolved instead. I developed the graphics and music over the past few days, going back and forth with […]

Bubble Trees

Bubble Trees

I drew these variations one night, looking for a good T-shirt design. I’m calling them “Bubble Trees” for now. What do you think they should be called?

The Twelve Days of Christmas

The Twelve Days of Christmas

Merry Christmas! Enjoy this series of animated videos my friends and I created and are releasing over 12 days, starting on Christmas Day, 2014.
Each video illustrates a verse of the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.

J-Walt conceived this project on December 18th, and quickly assembled the team which created designs and animations to match the […]

More Branching Fractal Sketches

More Branching Fractal Sketches

Another nights exploration produced these images (August 26, 2013). The objects are each members of a class of branching fractals generated from a single stroke of my pen and recursively drawn. The exploration takes place in my real-time system where I draw the initial stroke, tweak the parameters, and take a snapshot of the result.

“Magic Tree” light installation

I call it my “Holiday Tree”, but photographer Mae Koo calls it a “Magic Tree”. When the fairy comes out to harvest the glowing orbs, I’m inclined to agree with Mae — it’s magic!

In November 2011, I created this installation by illuminating the ash tree in my front yard with glowing orbs. Each orb contains […]

Fractal Jade Marbles

Fractal Jade Marbles

My night’s exploration of fractal patterns revealed a similarity between 2D Julia-style fractals and carved lapidary stones. A cut stone reveals a 3D volume in much the same way that a Julia set rendering reveals a 2D slice of a 4D configuration.
I created these images on September 2, 2013 with my animation performance system, navigating […]

  • Zerynthia Installation - Haxda Trees

Zerynthia

Zerynthia is a world of wonder and mystery. Floating wavering creatures, mysterious monoliths, and shuddering trees exist under an iridescent sky. I started exploring this world in 2013, and I continue to discover the mysteries and meanings within.

“Zerynthia” is video installation for experiencing a 3D world. One looks into this world as though through a large picture window. The scenes are inviting and captivating. Visitors linger long and discover aspects of this world that often I had not noticed or planned.

Here’s are images from this work-in-progress, including 3D stereoscopic versions (for red-cyan glasses viewing!)

Zerynthia was first exhibited at the Young Projects Gallery. It was part of a show that that ran March 19 through May 3, 2013. Update: As of May 6, 2013, I’ve had three sales of this installation. Four more are available. Contact the Young Projects Gallery to purchase this installation.

I’ve exhibited the installation on three occasions in 2015: June, September, and December.
