Fern

Fern
I was interested in the unfolding of the ferns in our garden. Ferns display classic "fractal"
symmetry, but I didn't exploit that fact in this rendering.

Wave on the Beach

wave on the beach
There's a rhythm of waves on the beach - that this animation doesn't really catch,
but it's a motif that I'd like to bring into these animations from time to time,
since wind is also a wave-like motion.

New Printer has arrived!

Yesterday a new, high quality printer, suitable for making reasonably sized art prints, arrived at
jhhl.net headquarters!
I'm testing it out with various formats or paper and quality settings, but it looks really good.
Some of my art schemes may come to fruition at last!

Vaporous Reality




This one is a little different:
A panorama turned into Quicktime VR format.
Click on the image and move the mouse around!
Shift zooms in, control zooms out.
If this doesn't work, well, you can try getting a fresh Quicktime plug-in from Apple.
I'm rather surprised more people aren't making QTVR pictures by hand instead of using photo panoramas.

Here also is the original, which is rather large.

These intestine-like things all have different timings between their keyframes, keeping them similar, but not in synch.
