Every artwork of genetic fractals has a clear origin: a thin line or a spike at the very heart of the form. From this origin, this seed, the shapes evolves and grows into the form.

Our understanding of the genome of species and the science to change them will soon lead to an acceleration in the origin of new species. Continue reading Singular life
