Overstepping Artefacts

While the fascination with fractal geometry is ongoing and its application in music video hardly new, this piece is interesting as much for the fizzing edges of computation visible in the evolving details as anything else. Viewed closely it is as if one can see the furious number-crunching involved in actually building these complexities whilst on the move. I have always imagined that the virtual worlds proposed as far back as William Gibson's Neuromancer would be accompanied by a vibrating, peripheral activity as they struggled to anticipate the needs of the user, frantically building themselves just ahead of one's gaze. The earthy, mineral aesthetic used here gives rise to a hybrid environment which looks partly geological and partly biological.
