Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, no thing is going to get better. It’s not.
The 1st Kaleidoscopes in 2017 were created on a Google Android Phone (ZTE Z987).
I used the following Android Apps available on Google Play:
- Tapet Pro (to create a base pattern, literally billions of possibilities)
- Kaleider Plus (to turn the base pattern into a kaleidoscopic work)
- Autodesk Pixlr (to do post processing and photo manipulations)
- PicsArt Photo Studio (to resize image, insert my signature logo and more photo manipulations)
- CM QuickPic Gallery (to organize each the works processing workflow, share the final works)
I also used the following applications on a Microsoft Windows 10 Laptop.
- Apophysis 7x (to build and render a baseline fractal image)
- Kaleider™ 5.1.2 (to turn the fractal image into a kaleidoscopic fractal image)
- Adobe Photoshop CC (to do post image processing, perform photo manipulation, insert logos)
- GeoSetter (encode IPTC-NAA/XMP tags: licenses, artist info, attribution details and geocoding data)
Kaleidoscopic Fractal Artwork Funtime!
I have been obsessed with digital fractal art since coming across the possibilities in 2004. Up to this time I mainly created photo manipulated digital art. And of course before that I created visual art on a Commodore 64 which I programmed line by line in B.A.S.I.C. programming language. I would program a piece of music and then set the music to computer generated imagery on the screen, this was back in like 1983. If I had only had the insight to have my adolescent self save my programs for the archives it would really have rounded out the very foundations of my unique artistic style and subsequent evolution.
In August of 2011 I was visiting my Brother Lief, as his baby girl was about to be born and I wanted to be there to support and help out. My Brother lives in Rawlins Wyoming at the time I was living in Henderson Nevada. I was awestruck by how bright the stars were at his house and would sit outside at night staring into the nights sky. Needless to say I had become quite familiar with the constellations and star groups viewable from his house.
Then one day I was quivering with an overload of very energetic energy emanating from everywhere. I just knew my new niece was on her way and about to make a grand appearance on Earth. That night I was sitting outside star gazing, but I couldn’t believe how bright the stars where. They looked like super powerful white lasers shining down on Earth.
Then it began, right before my eyes, the what I had held as impossible. I began to notice allot of equilateral triangles in the stars, or at least I was seeing the stars form points with a thin veil of energy like lines running between each of the three points. To see this type of formation with the added energetic lines was awesome to observe.
Then as if someone had set off a chain of dominoes the stars in the sky started transforming before my eyes into ever more equilateral triangles, ok, to see one or two formations is way cool, but to see the entire sky full of stars turn into equilateral triangles was just bizarre.
Then the total mind blowing (or expanding) moment came when I watch hundreds of thousands of stars transform into equilateral triangles, then all of these triangles began to twist, turn and move to begin forming very distinct polyhedrons the stars had suddenly become more three dimensional then I had ever seen in the sky.n After all of the polyhedrons were formed they began aligning themselves in concentric circles created out of polyhedrons all of them pointing to a distinct center point. So as if this was not enough to grab my undivided attention, I began to observe a multicolored pattern coming towards me from the center of this dome like shape made out of interlinking stars.
Then in an instant the pattern enveloped my entire body, it was all around me, then it collapsed into a narrow beam of undulating colored energy and it hit me square between my eyes. It knocked me over and freaked my mind out at the same time. I took three deep breaths and was trying to figure out how in the hell what I had just experienced was even possible, and yes that I may have just crossed over into complete insanity. As quickly as my mind was trying to cope and adjust to this experience an overwhelming calm came over my mind and body. Then suddenly I realized my brain is allot more full and suddenly solutions began to fill my consciousness with solutions to create the next evolution of imagery in my art. The visions where unbelievable and oddly I knew exactly what I need to do to create these visions digitally. It was like someone had put a step by step instruction manual directly into my mind.
This was the birth of my kaleidoscopic fractal artworks and animations. I went inside, turn on my laptop and in about six hours created my first 40 minute kaleidoscopic fractal animation in full HD. I blew myself away, my newly discovered art style was far beyond even my highest visions. A complete feeling of fullness filled my body, for the first time in my life I felt mo need for anything, anyone, anywhere I was totally complete in every way. And like any good artist I began my creating new work in the kaleidoscopic fractal style. I was off to the races with this one.
So up to this date I have created over 200 unique kaleidoscopic fractal animations in HD. I have also created hundreds of single works as well. So incase you wanted to know how the kaleidoscope artworks came to be. now you know.
