Ordering the Chaos by rocamiadesign

2/23/11 – Featured in the IMAGEWRITING Group.

Made in UltraFractal 5 from a standard Julia. I added the water in Photoshop CS by copying and pasting the center of the image and then flipping it vertically and moving to the bottom. I used the Redfield Ripples filter and then Gaussian blue and layer styles to make the water effect. I also skewed the water layer to give it perspective.

I used KPT Materializer on the background to give it some additional texture and blended the edges of the images to add a dreamy look.

This is my abstract idea of the creation of the universe. Christians and scientists agree that it happened in a single moment. They just differ in their idea of the mechanics of it. Either way, it involved making order out of chaos.

    (reads description, nods in agreement!) And this is what all fractal artists do, isn’t it! We bring order out of chaos! I was sitting here working in UF one day, probably a couple of years ago now, when it suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks……this is how the Lord made creation…..with fractal mathematics! After all, He created the math to begin with. Men discovered it finally, but God created it, and used it to create the universe and everything in it! How else can we possibly explain all the fractals in nature, for instance? I know a great many people would disagree with me on this, but this is just what I felt like the Lord showed me, all in an instant! (you should have seen the look on my face!) Thank you for daring to approach the subject!

  • Thank you for the wonderful comment! You don’t know how much it blesses me that you liked this. I’ve been praying for the inspiration to make meaningful and uplifting art. You have given me a lot to think about. My husband likes to polish rocks that he has found because he feels like he’s uncovered God’s beautiful artwork in them. I’ve always felt that I was doing something similar in exploring fractals, but I couldn’t put it into words as well as you did.
