The Spring of Dreams, a macro fractal deep dream

“The Spring of Dreams” by Jaya Prime

Pt 13 of 36 in the “Spectral Recursion” series

“Centaur, with arrows to shoot the stars,
searches the archive of signs and storms.
The Leaf of Autumn is lost and far.
Winter has melted and Spring has warmed.”
~San Jaya Prime, The Wayfarer’s Songs

Incept: I created the base 3D JuliaN fractal in Apophysis, then ran it thru the classic Google Deep Dreams filter “Machine Elves” on Dreamscope App to bring out all the eyes. The frosts are melting, Love. A new spring dawns.

Winter Dreams – Deep Dream Fractal Snowstorm

A beautiful winter storm where snowflakes mingle with the stars of the sky above, created as a fusion between fractals and deep dreams.

No.7 of 36 in the “Spectral Recursion” series

“Dark falls the seasons on turning wheel.
Cold takes the shadows nearest window sills.
Take warmth’s token and make of it bed,
where Bone Frost’s fingers pass o’erhead”
~San Jaya Prime, The Wayfarer’s Songs

Facts: Winter in the Northern Hemisphere is not cold because of how far our planet is from the sun, but because of the angle of the light that strikes us — our planet’s “tilt”. In summer, the light hits us head on, as a spear, then ripples out in photonic waves across the surface. In winter, the light hits us at an angle, and the photonic waves literally splash over the surface — as a stone skipping across the top of a lake — and then back out into space. Add this to the limited hours of photonic exposure in winter, and you will find that frost soon follows. That does not, however, explain how a warm cup of cocoa can melt even the coldest of nights. That’s just magic.

Incept: I pulled the original hyperbolic fractal from the “StarSeed” poster that many already know from my music, then ran it through a few deep dream filters before adding stars, snowflakes, and lens flare.

In the darkest of seasons, find the light that warms you and take it with you.

Deep Space Dreamer — Kepler-62e Deep Dream Fractal Mandala

The largest exoplanet we have discovered, deep dreamed amid a vibrant violet fractal mandala.

No.5 of 36 in the “Spectral Recursion” series

“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” ~Carl Sagan

Facts: Of the 564 currently confirmed exoplanets, only thirty-two register as habitable. Eleven of these are strikingly similar to our own Terra: size, shape, and at a distance from their star of origin to keep them from freezing and from burning up. Whether or not any of these are already inhabited remains to question. Want to take a ride?

Incept: I grabbed the shot from NASA of Kepler-62e, the largest exoplanet that we’ve discovered so far. After adding it to a fanned PDJ fractal in Apophysis, I processed it with Google’s Deep Dreams AI, before finally painting on a new layer of colors.

More: This fractal mandala has a long history, with design variations published online and in books. The most recent deep dream mandala version appears as the two-page spread in the book “Spectral Iteration: A Prismatic Journey thru the Beautiful Art of Fractals and Abstracts” (pictured below). The book is filled with other fractals and abstracts, including inspirational poetry to match the art. It’s available for purchase in hardback and softback format here on Amazon.
