The electric proportions of the fractal universe collide in a pulsing video of symmetrical graphics, dripping with piercing whites and blazing oranges. Created by Gabe Casdorph with a Sony a7R ll camera and a Canon 100mm macro lens, the actual process of filming and actualizing the video involved burning wood with electricity (and a little high voltage never seems to disappoint in art). The author describes the undertaking as an “experiment with Lichtenberg fractal figures.” The manipulation-free phenomenon takes inspiration from the branching visual of a bolt of lightning spreading its current. With swirling visuals that are both enticing yet absolutely dizzying to view, the head-splitting sequences make for a most appropriate companion to electronic beats and synths.
