Poems from the Road – Preface

A multimedia work inspired by a famous and celebrated journey which took place many years ago in Japan.
In this project I have used generative music and generative art techniques to create  a concept album.

Mandelbulb 3D Fractal

I wonder what a living space might look like if the things living in it were very far from human? From our perspective, it might look so strange that we would not even recognize form hinting at function. We might guess that it was some natural accretion of crystalline material – growing, yet devoid of design or intent. 

Steampunk Playmat

I play Magic The Gathering most Friday nights. I am not very skilled at the game, but I like the card designs and admire the artwork. I also like the “paraphernalia” – boxes, dice, playmats etc. So I decided to create my own design for a playmat.

Sehnsucht

Soundscapes and images inspired (at least in part) by avant garde composers of the last century, including Karheinz Stockhausen and György Ligeti.

Lion Rider

I like to invent album covers for 1970’s Prog Rock bands that existed only in my own imagination. Wierd huh? Yeah, I know.

Painterly Effects

This image is the outcome of my attempt to make some progress with advanced techniques. Up until now, many of my 3D rendered images have suffered from the same flaw – they look flat and lifeless, plastic and unreal.

Painting by Numbers

Flame fractals were discovered by Scott Draves in 1992. I am not a mathematician, so I do not fully understand what they are, or how they work, and cannot explain them in any way that would stand up to scrutiny. So without apology, and for all the other non-mathematicians out there, here is my take…

Composite Images

Images created by blending multiple techniques, including rendered wire-frame models, fractal images, textures and photographs.
