Welcome to the Synth Art
This all began from experiments with
Like many others, I was fascinated by their beautiful shapes and colors,
by virtually endless universe of objects I can built
starting to explore from every randomly taken fractal's point.
Then (some 150 rendered fractals later :-), I found that,
given a wide enough palette of software tools
and photo-sources, it's possible to create even more
mind-boggling images, trying to merge seamlessly these
math creatures with pictures of real-world objects,
or views, or human faces.
Not every fractal purist would agree that this all is worth
'spoiling' of the original perfection; on the opposite side of
view, those whose goal is to defend the 'real art'
would never take seriously a rendered math piece as having
any significant value, whether it is combined with photo-
or traditionally painted elements, or not.
But it's up to you to judge now, if this approach works...
Strange spaces, Strange forms
Here you'll see fractals in all their weirdness
and beauty, yet augmented by real-world species. They also make spectacular
breakthrough into 3D world.
The gift of Sensuality
Woman's face (and, yeah, body) can be implanted beautifully into
an artificial, synthetic background. Results are sometimes truly stunning.
Take a look at this
romantic section. Should show what might be done with
one's average family album photos...
Hey you, sci-fi fans
I admit, I've been a hard-core science fiction addict
thru my childhood and youth.
Even tried to write something myself. At this stage
I can afford only sporadical reading (sigh...).
It's wonderful that, having left a hope to write ever anything decent,
I found another way to exercise my imagination: a visual one.
This dedicated sci-fi section
contains most characteristical works.
A touch of Magic
I hope you'll have your share of amazement, looking
at the colors and shapes revealed by the images at
this room of the Exhibition.
A cold math?
The Chaos and the People
More on the 'human+fractal superimposing' theme...
I like to see as well what can happen with a geometrically
decomposed and rearranged body (or face) being thrown
onto the electronic canvas some programmed way.
See also (sort of) tribute to Kai Krause at this peculiar
department of the Exhibition.
Live Fractals: the very best of
To me, fractal images are an inspiring and endless source
for these Synth Art compositions. Of course, fractals may look
quite striking themselves, if I'm lucky to find an interesting
figure and colors gamma in some obscure corner of the
math universe. Visit the
Live Fractals gallery to see the complete collection of my fractal works,
in-depth topics, links and more. While being my earlier 'installation',
it is still worth looking at. The current Exhibition includes
'The very best of' hall
containing a number of images I consider most
essential, - in all their appearance left intact.
Don't miss this movie
Yes, here they come, clips,
featuring fractal zoom-in flights,
metamorphoses, and morphing.
Note that the MPEG files here are pretty heavy:
sizes vary from 3 to 4 Mb (except for
the 155 Kb morph). You can opt also for visiting
the most known and popular place of this kind:
Fractal Movie Archive ,
but I doubt if you can find any presence of Michelangelo there...

Unlimited Virtual Trash Can!
Try new and unique feature of this home page: the Virtual Trash Can.
Drag-and-drop onto it any object of a World-Wide Web page (or
even of your desktop) you want to get rid of. Start with this
Exhibition, if you want!
You would ask: What's new with this? I can use the Trash Can
(or Recycle Bin, or...) of my own OS! Well, the difference is that with this
Virtual Trash Can you waste objects globally, clean and unrecoverable
way * . No questions asked!
Tip >>> If you can't reach the Virtual Trash Can at some moment
because your browser (e.g. Netscape) is loaded with another URL, just
create a separate browser window and load this page into it, so you
can drag-and-drop across windows.
MetaTip >>> If the Trash Can appears not working somehow, try
drag-and-drop using the right mouse button. If this doesn't work (or you
can't find the right mouse button), ask
Warning. DON'T click on the Trash Can icon!
* Note. This is a free 30-days trial
version of the Virtual Trash Can. After this period you must stop using
it and buy a license to continue wasting (use mail-box down this page for
