These beguiling geometric figures are the work of Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist Tom Beddard, aka subBlue. Although it looks like you could reach out and touch them, they’re three-dimensional models digitally rendered by Beddard’s formulaic methods. Beddard calls them Fabergé Fractals because their incredibly intricate and dazzling patterns are ornate like jewel-encrusted Fabergé eggs.
Beddard describes his work:
"The 3D fractals are generated by iterative formulas whereby the output of one iteration forms the input for the next. The formulas effectively fold, scale, rotate or flip space. They are truly fractal in the fact that more and more detail can be revealed the closer to the surface you travel.
"The fascinating aspect is where combinations of parameters can combine to create structural ‘resonances’ of extraordinary detail and beauty—sometimes naturally organic and other times perfectly geometric. But then like a chaotic system it can completely disappear with the smallest perturbation."

Wandering through a hospital, Courtney encounters a reptilian version of my long time friend, Mark Sunshine’s character, ‘JH’, in conversation with a blob woman. The wall of bright blue eyes stares on, behind them.
This was from a story I had written which was inspired by a brief dream I had experienced while falling asleep on acid, some years ago.
I hadn’t thought it possible to drift into sleep while tripping, and the imagery was vivid, feverish, and very different from what I’d usually see during a dream state.
