Cosmic Flower Unfolding is a constant flow of emerging and dissolving oceanic, futuristic, and mandala forms. It is a tribute to abstraction, its connection to the inner space we inhabit and how it can be externalized.

I just uploaded the full version of my film “Cellular Circuitry” to Vimeo. Please watch, enjoy, and share
“Cellular Circuitry” is a stream of digital sculptures and soundscapes that dynamically transmute between organic and circuit-like motifs. It is a reflection of artificial versus natural systems animated in such a way to show that they are intimately connected to one another. My goal was to closely link the visual changes on screen with a mix of natural and digitally sourced sounds. Some sounds are meditative and inviting while others are edgy and alien. They are an audial parallel of what the viewer is seeing and changes in sync with the morphing visual forms they represent.
