*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.
