chaotic symmetries

The initial intent of the work in this 64 page art portfolio book was to show the investigations of “Chaotic” patterns in nature by introducing and utilizing symmetry as a tool to structurally alter fractal self similarity. This brings forth an induced or forced sense of order to random form, chance and dimension while possibly evoking primitive pseudo sentient images. The visual phenomenon that was apparent early on in the investigation became a repeating dominating visual factor and effect in all of the works to follow. The images in each piece suggested an underlying preexisting structure revealing a primal or spiritual sense of animation and being. To illustrate earlier investigations making order out of chaotics, this book was developed to convey these ideas while experiencing the art.
