Complexification

This unusual work is made by Jared Tarbell, an artist and programmer from Albuquerque New Mexico. These graphics are all created through computer programs he creates. He says "With an algorithmic goal in mind, I manipulate the work by finely crafting the semantics of each program. Specific results are pursued, although occasionally surprising discoveries are made." The images are printed as Archival prints with pigmented archival inks on PH neutral paper. This piece, Hello Invaders, is a limited edition part of the Invader Fractal algorithm. There are about 10,000 unique invaders within the fractal. The arrangement of each invader is through what he calls a "recursive fractal method". This is all a mouthful--needless to say this work is original, and Jared is one talented programming-artist.
