My original intention with this piece was to imitate what I think is "traditional-looking" fractal art, by superimposing several differently colored snapshots of a spiral-like fractal. However, I ended up deciding that my first layer looked good enough to stand alone. It's a Julia fractal. The spiraling bright white beam contrasts nicely with the dark and aged stone-like geography that curls around it, as if overwhelmed by the beam's energy. The image made me think of an old world being retired by a fresh cosmic force.
I wasn't listening to any music while making this one. Crickets chirped outside.
