Nature Abstraction is an immersive sensory experience that explores the arcane forms of fractals, mathematical visual representation of natural and biological forms. Showcasing in the upcoming group show at Gazelli Art House and previously at the Barbican Centre the project gives an insight into fractal formations through virtual reality.


The fractals have also been processed through Google’s Deepdream, transforming the fractal landscapes into morphing psychedelic patterns that our eye will recognize as very familiar shapes. However, the way the images are created only aims to create a variety of random patterns on the canvas.


The audience is guided to explore these planets and dive into their vast complexities as well as observe the contrast between the entirely digital created world inside the VR against the fully analogue created film projected onto the faces of the cube, which have been filmed in real life, recreating using analogue visual effects and various chemical elements.
