Literature
Horror Vacui
express myself? i wish i could unhinge my jaw and pour out silence so viscous
the fans in the ceiling the cars on the street deadened utterly
your clapless hands hit each other nothing
you search for sound like trying to remember your own sleep
until you claw at your ear canals
your fingernails digging (mute, even so close)
“not silence! anything but—” your powerless lips try to babble at
(as you have babblekilled silence with comforting masturbation before)
at me, an abomination
who not only has nothing to say
but forces upon you my beautiful Nothing,
that hollowness of my closed geode chest
that all the amethysts point to in prayer
is it so terrifying to be denied opinion
is it so unimaginable some do not always reflex “well i think”
even in the shelter of their own skull
to not even be tempted?
it is unimaginable—to you, idolator of your own reactions,
but hear me though you might deny:
mirrorlike people, still fully people, walk amo

Parade Passing the Bitcoin Bank
I have become quite disenchanted with the smooth shiny high-production-value style of IFS fractals that seems to be in style right now, whether it's high-contrast nebulas for instant visual impact, or tesselations with every piece slickly color-blocked and sliding right into exact place. That's not to say I will never like (or make!) anything like that ever again, but my perception is that right now, they are so trendy fractals that adhere to that style are given an insta-ooh-ahh quality pass even if there might not have been whole lot of artistic thought and/or experimentation put into the other elements of the piece. And also I am just longing for some of the great grungy styles that I have barely seen recently.

So! Here is a tile that was designed with some overlaps. I went through painstaking effort to calculate the exact positions of the transforms and when I was done I nudged a few of them off their marks for texture. Then I scribbled all over it. I hope you like it!

(also my perception of fractal trends could be totally off because I haven't exactly been in the loop lately, but this has just been on my mind)

struggled a bit with whether to call this a raw fractal or a fractal manip. it is two renders layered, but they are identical except for imaging and the overall result is a quite subtle color adjustment. in the end i decided that counts as "minimal postwork" esp. since there are no non-fractal elements

Hello everyone; you might have heard already but I figured I should post a notice here too:

Myself, lyc, Erik Reckase (flam3 and electric sheep co-author), piethein21, katdesignstudio, and jasperb86 are gonna be in Amsterdam between August 21st and 27th! The plan is just to hang out and fractal together, maybe visit a few museums, that kind of thing. 

tagging: bezo97, pillemaster, zy0rg, BoxTail, Zueuk, and anybody else who is interested. The more the merrier!
