For this week’s 360 video sketch, I’m demonstrating some hand-crafted artisanal fractals! I sculpted, designed, and performed this world in real-time, set to my original music. I’m drawing the trees in the performance while I fly through the world. The trees grow generatively with the duplication of each gestural stroke.
