Euclid's nightmare by IDeviant Euclid's nightmare by IDeviant
=f--l--A--r--k has issued an interesting challenge: to present a fresh twist on the rings2-julian style [link] The course of my explorations led to a clutch of diverting pieces, but this is the selected work, an attempt at representing a ferociously curved multi-dimensional space that would have the eponymous mathematician spinning around a single selected axis in his grave :D

The full view of this image just pulls you in - amzing maze of texture and the drama from min color makes it even stronger - like tight small corridors with light opennings at the ends!!

It serves him right, Proposing all those propositions and what not. Great piece though, any escher in the final transform?

No, just curl on the final.

Did you add to c1 and c2? or just one of the aspects? lol

IDeviant Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just c2! I used 1, but maybe 0.9 would have been better for this...

My first thought was "stone tentacles", but that was way too prosaic to move beyond the working stage :D

Do you mean "how did I get the stripey bits?" or "what caused the horizontal lines at the sides?"? If the former, wedge-julia substitution, if the latter, a curl final xform with c2 set to 1 (I now think 0.9 would have been better!) :D

I thought it might have been an awkward mismatch where one of yr strip renders hadn't been quite seamless - so probably the wedge-Julia fx. :sherlock:

Ah, so you definitely mean those horizontal lines - that's the curl c2 = 1. I only developed the strip rendering for poster-sized prints, and the match is always perfect, which actually surprised me!

Aha! The dreaded curl C2.
Yes, you mentioned advantages of seamlessness using strip render script- I'll get around to it eventually. Not much into prints, they have their place but I prefer to keep fractals in digital electronic media to optimise luminosity. Playing with new gadgetry in wall art lightshows [link] so it cld have application fr large size renders fr bigscreen views.
Pity about the Benoit, better luck next year :sadangel:
