When genetic fractals mate: select the fittest and cross-breed


You may have had the impression that “genetic” in “genetic fractals” was just a conceptual term to convey a notion that these fractals have a link with life. Actually, these fractals are build on a genetic code that is mathematical Continue reading When genetic fractals mate: select the fittest and cross-breed


The awesomeness of being lost


The lack of activity on this blog – this my third post in 2016 – only means one thing: huge activity elsewhere. I have slowed down on searching for great ideas, inspiration, happiness, friendship, love and understanding life. Instead, I concentrate hard on getting lost.

The end of the year is always a time for finishing things to make space for new ideas. I’ve been meaning to create a new collection of genetic fractal images and designs. I’ve got lots of plans for 2015 so I’d better finish up on that collection. I’ll putting these up here and if I’m inspired, I might even say a thing or two. Continue reading Just like that

One moment I’m thumbing my old blackberry and the next moment I am at a bus shelter in Indonesia, sitting on the floor, leaning against my backpack. Continue reading Preludes to now

Genetic fractals…


Let me take you for a tour in my laboratory, which happens to be located in the recesses of a confused mind. If you feel nausea anytime, please step aside, take a few deep breaths and continue the tour. We’ll wait. In any case, I blame David Yerle for waking up this monster that was sleeping quietly at my feet. In fairness, I brought it on myself with yesterdays post. Continue reading Genetic fractals…

Creative design: a quest for a thousand quests

There was a time when I called myself a designer, and proudly so. The term design has now been appropriated by people that design furniture, fashion, websites etc. I’m fine with that as I love and admire what they do. Myself I came into this as an electronics engineer and I designed circuits. (Don’t stop here if you think this is going to be geeky, skip straight to the 5th paragraph!)
