Strange Brains

Does my artwork above remind you of something? Perhaps we can call it Strange Brains? (Click to enlarge.)
Did you ever wonder for example how does a genius brains look like? Maybe that's how? Or perhaps we are looking at the structure of a pretty consciousness itself? Or maybe this is how the structure of a beautiful artificial mind might look like? Let me know.:)

If you gasped 'yes' on any of the questions above, you might like to read:
C.A. Pickover, Strange Brains and Genius. Or P. Russell, The Brain Book or watch Stuart Hameroff talking about a new marriage of brain and computer .
Also, don't forget to check R. Kurzweil's research on artificial intelligence.

3D Fractals

More and more each day I'm impressed by the power of various computer tools I like to use and explore. Fractals are the entities I love, and above are three images that show 3D fractals. The title of the first one is Strangeland, the one in the middle is Atlantis, the one below is, of course, Fractland.:)
(Click to enlarge.)

There's a lot of books on fractals, one recommendation:
C.A. Pickover, The Pattern Book.
Another recommendation: B. Mandelbrot, The Fractal Geometry of Nature.

Above you can see my artwork with a title "Perspicuous". It's a photo of work on acrylic on canvas.
I think it clearly shows my love for geometrical/mathematical art. In case you wonder about the odd word "Perspicuous" - I gave this title to the artwork in honor of the person I admire very much: the famous late geometer Donald Coxeter. Perspicuous was one of his favorite words.
I'm sure you are familiar with the word intelligibility so I guess I really don't need to explain perspicuous to you.

BTW - I think Dr. Coxeter would like the word 'zemified'.

An excellent biography about H.S.M Coxeter is S. Roberts' The King of Infinite Space. Enjoy.
