Scientific phenomenon has an artistic aesthetic that transcends its ability to attempt to explain the world around us. Color records time and creates the illusion of dimensionally. Time becomes color. Strange attractors generate repeating point patterns in two-dimensional space while their coloring algorithms which represent time can produce images of coherent three-dimensional forms. The third dimension is determined by the perception of the viewer coupled with a created intent. The forms include a ghostly view into an imaginary core. The swirling patterns gently display possible subsurface structures that cannot be logically followed through any dimension. Dimensions become ambiguous as your perception attempts to combine the individual points so they complete a whole, one that is devoid of context. Structured, unstructured; visible, invisible; logical, illogical; perfect, imperfect; intentional, unintentional; two-dimensional, three-dimensional. An unpredictable assembly of scattered points congregates into perceptual patterns. Our visual perception overrides any logical order we wish to establish. Color causes the crossover of dimension. Many of these could have been inspired from natural forces such as, wind and water, or earthen formations. For example, the stone series explores the possible subsurface patterns in nature that are not visible to us; the smoldering images smoke, others; folding, bending, twisting, draping and crumpling of identifiable materials or organisms. These images were created algorithmically using a series of related strange attractor equations with coloring schemes that bring out the time element of the computational process. Each was developed by the computation of between twelve-to-fifty-seven million points. A total of 24,000 images were generated from twenty-four equations. Each image was reviewed and then approximately 200 were selected for rendering.
