Art Montage: Fractal Consciousness
Art Montage: Fractal Consciousness brings together, in previous unrealized ways, concepts and techniques utilized in former projects to create new forms. The image communicates. Any moment it will happen . . . the eyes shift and strain to focus . . . the doorway opens . . . then, a moment of vertigo . . . and you are through. The world expands and surrounds you. From deep within the fractal sphere rise multi-dimensional beings. One entity merges with another before morphing again, repeating, repeating, always a new being, always the same beings, always, only, one being who is all beings. Light and dark, yin and yang, thrust and undulate, come forward before receding, circling one another, eternally entwined. Snarling jaws lung forward, snapping, threatening before morphing into the torso of an electric being crackling with waves of energy, its throat an owl. Beginning at its solar plexus and rising upwards like chakras is the face of a different entity growing larger and larger. The head expands, and at either side, a Buddha-type being sits in lotus, calm and surreal radiating light and manifesting a sphere. Waves of energy radiate out while undulating back. Consciousness explodes inward and out. All time is present and laid out in the image. The viewer's consciousness moves back and forth through time as scenes and beings change and transform. What follows are examples from a much larger project.
