Fractal trees can be created using any combination of angles and ratios but, when I first tried to create one, I chose 45 degrees and the Golden Ratio. After a few iterations, I was amazed to see a heart emerge in the negative spaces. To me, this is a sacred symbol since it marries art to science and spirit to systems thinking. Perhaps more important, the fractal tree teaches us how the simplest formulas (or algorithms) found everywhere in nature can evolve into wondrously complex and beautiful creations.
In addition to creating digital art, I am video producer and a communication specialist. Recently, I returned to school to study graphic design, which supports my artistic ambitions and my passion for promoting systemic innovation.
