Software by Cyrille Henry

Exhibition Inside / Art & Science
Lisboa, Portugal
From 24th September to 24th November 2009

« Fractal Flowers » is a new generation of virtual garden. It's a new generator which produces gigantic fractal flowers of different sizes, colors and shapes. The originality and the power of this creation concentrates on this generator fromwhich we can create a selection of the most beautiful flowers. Through atypical shapes, amazing colors, otherworldly artificial paradises are created.

Besides, this work leans on a generative and interactive principle, creating autonomous virtual seeds, growing, opening out, fading and reacting to the audience. It reveals stylized flowers, through an extreme geometry in its shapes. We are in front of an intriguing vegetal universe, full of crystal-flowers with a wire frame, reminding of the facets of a diamond, which have on the one hand a real monumentality with its geometrical shapes, and on the other hand an evanescent aspect, when after some seconds, the flowers evaporate in the air like a cloud becoming blurred progressively.

The vastness of these flowers, as well as their intuative movement, creates an enigmatic dialogue with the visitors. Flowers stoop like a bow in order to welcome the public in this mysterious virtual garden, then display their most beautiful colors and shapes, look at them, merge on colored backgrounds, lean out as to observe close to our reality, to disappear finally out of sight, out of our fascintated look, touched by the living relation with a disappeared virtual object.
