It is an absolutely beautiful day today in Otterville, full of colour and the patterns of nature, so I plan to spend some time outside. It was during another beautiful day a few years back, hiking in the woods at Awenda Provincial Park, that I came across many kinds of fungus. I took a number of photos, and an edited version of one of them ended up as part of this image I am presenting to you today.
On another completely separate occasion, I was creating fractal images and found that, as is often the case, there were distinctly natural and vegetative features recognizable in one. I saved it, and later on when looking through all of my photos, I noticed how well the features in it mimicked and extrapolated the patterns of growth I had noticed in the fungal photo. I had even just happened, by whim, to have edited the photo so that its colours matched the ones I had, by chance, used in the fractal creation.
What you see below is a digital collage of the natural and the generated fractal patterns, printed on metal. Once again nature shows how it is a manifestation of the fractal patterns of the universe.
