Artist's Description

*A rumble shakes
From seas below
Spawn from the quake
That does not show

The ocean lifts
Above it’s source
Caused by the rifts
Along faults course

A swell of ocean
Widens in girth
Begins it’s motion
Tsunami’s birth

To shore it crawls
With all it’s might
From swell to wall
As it gains height

From wall to wave
Where it meets sand
Momentums slave
Now smothers land*

This fractal artwork was inspired by the ongoing volcanic activity about 150 miles off the coast from where I live in the Pacific Northwest. This volcanism has the potential of becoming a full blown underwater volcano, which would create a massive tsunami along the Pacific Northwest coastline. Authorities have been installing new tsunami warning sirens, as well as tsunami zone and tsunami evacuation route signs, all along the coast. The NOAA, which is diligently studying this volcanic activity at sea, has said it is only a matter of when, not if, the tsunami will occur.

The artwork portrays both the tsunami waves and the depths of it’s origin. The fractal was created in ChaosPro. The gradient used in the fractal was created in the palette editor that comes bundled with ChaosPro. Post-processing was done in Photoshop.
