Here’s some experiments using Mandelbulber, a program developed by Krzyszof MARCZAK:

gniklat – That’s talking backwards…

I’m in the throes of learning the Jabberwocky’s words backwards. As Alice read the book by looking at its reflection in the mirror, I am trying to get the same audio effect by reciting the poem backwards, then reversing it. I remember a similar technique done through David Lynch’s Twin Peaks character The Man From Another Place.

Start frame of Mandelbulb sequence I am currently working on, generated by subblue’s Quartz Composer Mandelbulb plugin. I’m capturing stills of a rotation of the set on the x-axis, then repeating the process, while increasing the Power parameter. The resulting image sequences will then be converted into compound clips in Final Cut Pro X, then layered. Let’s see what happens – if it works I’ll post it up on Vimeo.

Welcome to my WordPress site…

Hi there.

This is my new web domain – Apple ditched their web hosting last year, so I’ve upped sticks and arrived here on WordPress. This site is also born out of me learning WordPress for two courses I teach on: BA (H0ns) Design and BA (Hons) English Language & Literary Studies, both at the University Centre at Blackburn College, UK. There’s quit a bit of old stuff on here – it’s what I have to hand, but I’ll be posting new material up shortly – animation, interactive and written…

Anyhoo hope you like,

Laters, M.
