Art Event Overview:

    The raytraced scenes were processed by a homebrew machine and original software. Bump mapping and texture mapping on the sliced parahyperboloid surfaces. The images have a resolution of 2048 * 1536 and 24 bit colors.

    Computer images generated by mathematical process introduce us to the world we have never seen. The images are not reproductions of our real world, but actually exist in the world. As telescopes and microscopes extended our aural and vocal powers, computer graphics provides the perceptual breakthrough. For myself, computer is not a painting/drawing brush but the image generator. That is why I am using only math-based programs.
