*Copper veins and arteries
Created from Cat 5
Moves data blood that we don’t see
That keeps network alive

Capillaries of Firewire
As well as USB
Add to the massive quagmire
To grow the network’s tree

A knight known as an analyst
Intelligence his game
With brains instead of brawn and fist
Keeps network dragon tame*

This fractal artwork was inspired by the infinite complexity of many networks, such as the internet that is presently the ultimate network. It is also for every poor soul that has ever dared to venture to the backsides of their own computers or entertainment systems as well. This is dedicated to our son-in-law, Jake, who makes piles of money as an accomplished network security analyst, and provides our daughter with a wonderful life because of his proficiency at his trade. Cheers Jake!

The concept of the artwork was to first show the infinite complexity associated with most networks, and second to show the similarities to the veins and arteries that make up the organic networks in our world.

The original is 6000 × 6000 pixels at 300 pixels per inch. The fractal was created in Incendia. The only post-processing was adding the borders in Photoshop. I have included a few detail cutaways below so you can see the detail. The detail cutaways are at 66% of the original size of the artwork.

I am an artist, a photographer, a writer, a musician, a composer, a craftsman, a designer, and a programmer. I have been recognized for various works in all of these areas over the last half century.

    Very cool!!!! :)

  • Thank you so much, Daisy!! I tried to get this so none of the wires would intersect, although this is as close as I could come after several hours of trying.

    taming the tangle … you should see my setup even if you exclude the three game machines, tv and dvd player! thinking of getting some pvc pipe and run the wires through them .. at least they won’t collect dust! (big grin)

  • LMAO!! Sounds like my own setup… and it’s about to get worse, as I have an older computer that I’m sticking cards in to hook up to the entertainment system so I can watch the streaming movies that come with my Netflix account.

    I find groveling with the long-handled feather duster pretty good about getting the dust off of my cable mess… should hook up one of these to a vacuum and market it ‘for only $19.99 plus shipping and handling’ on the tele! LMAO

    That’s awsome Drew!!!!! The colours contrast yet blend so well……fabulous artwork…..

  • Thank you so much, Tezz!! The blue-gray color was done to represent the insulation on common Cat 5 cable, and the orange-red was meant to be a playful representation of Firewire.
