Dimension Attractor Thirteen by MANDELWERK Dimension Attractor Thirteen by MANDELWERK
The Tower Falcon guarding the two "dimension-attractor" towers in the Ultra Holy Cathedral of hidden dimensions.
The cathedral are located inside a grain of cosmic dust at the bottom of an Arctic sea.
Still it could contain billions of galaxies inside its nave…
What it does contain are all the hidden dimensions of the joint universes.
The cathedral also houses the cruet containing the formulas for 13 dimensional rotations. We were one step closer to the holy Grail.

There had been a slight disturbance in the universal constants and the Falcon was set to work.
The Rhinoceros mentioned something about one more 13th mystery...

Mandelbulb 3D, clouds and birds photographed by me, added in Photoshop.
Been working on it for too long, time to let go...

(Tower Falcon is the literal translation of the Swedish name for Kestrel.)

And, yes I am back to the "Rhino-fractal"

Have a nice weekend!

the titles you come up with are just insane. they absolutely complement your work and even add an extra dimension to our interpretation of it. It must take a lot of patience and effort to conjure these titles..!

Thank you Tan Yi.
Sometimes my imagination lives a life on its own, but the titles is very important for me.

It's great to see that you've got a pretty convoluted imagination, and you're absolutely right; any work as dynamic as yours must most certainly live, if not adopt, a life of its own. I think the best fractal arts are those that strike a deep chord in the viewer, those that reminds you of something that was dreamed or experienced, but not in the waking world -- something nostalgic and deeply buried in memory.

Asolutely fantastic! I love your approach using any software that leads to the image you create. Assuming that the basics are created in the miraculous Mandelbulb 3D -- I wish I had the slightest idea how some of the objects are build.
Most of my stills so far are done with Xenodreams and I hvae a hard time creating stills in Mandelbulb, because it animates so effortless and fast.

Thank you very much Brumm! :bow:

Well it is not like I build these images, more that i find them, mixing different 3D formulas and exploring the resulting hybrid to find interesting places.

Wow! Your oils are totally crazy, I used to paint surreal oils in the past, and have thought about doing these images in oil too, have too little time though...

I'm not sure to follow your surreal description of this location !
Is that "pure" fractal with a fixed math formula or do you enhance it with photoshop ?
Are you the pope of the Ultra Holy Cathedral of hidden dimensions ??

:iconmandelwerk:
MANDELWERK Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2011
Its a pure fractal, though I did add the Clouds and the images of the birds in PS.
So everything but birds and clouds are the pure 3D fractal...
When you asked the question I became the pope! :)
Thank you Olivier!

This looks really nice.
The rhinoceros fractal has a lot of great variations :)

Is the 13D-rotation thing just stuff that crossed your mind or is there infact some kind of relation to it?
Reply
:iconmandelwerk:
MANDELWERK Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2011
The "Rhino-fractal" is a negative scaled amazing box with added extra rotations, yes :)
Not 13-D though... That function are still in its cruet... :(
Reply
:iconkram1032:
kram1032 Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2011
heh.
13D rotations downprojected to 3D would probably not look that much different from 4D rotations...
Or would there be a visible difference of a kind of rotation in 5+D that isn't possible in 4D?

I know, that kind of thing does exist for 4D vs 3D...

:D Trafassel is my favorite, I really must try his Gestaltlupe (love the sound of that too) some day... too little time to do it.
There is a waste sea of secrets to find inside these fractals, the inside is infinity x infinity raised to infinity x 2 :)

kram1032 Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011
Gestaltlupe means form/shape-magnification-glass, heh
pretty bad name in English but it works really well in German :)

what kind of infinity are we talking about here? the "simplest" one (1+1+1+...+1) or an infinity, so big, it's not even reachable by that series? :P
Reply
:iconmandelwerk:
MANDELWERK Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2011
Yes this is the (2+2+2+...+2) kind of infinity :)
