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 through the fractal space with my gamepad, and choosing color patterns that are reminiscent of jade.
