INTERSECTING DIMENSIONS

Intersecting Dimensions is a portal to the infinitely complex world of fractals.
Thanks to the latest technologies, we can now visualize insanely complex structures that can be described with just a few lines of non Euclidean math expressions.
The fractal dimension has no scale, no time and no meaning. Only humans ability to recognize patterns can give those spaces a meaning, subjective for each one of us.
This piece took around 600 hours to render on the very latest hardware.

MACHINA INFINITUM

 

Founded in 2018, Machina Infinitum is a dynamic duo consisting of Matteo Scappin and Jesper Nybroe. They focus on 3D fractal animations for music videos, feature films, festivals, concerts and events; and on the innovative technical implementation of fractal generation in traditional 3D rendering programs.

They have created and released several Octane Render plug-ins for Cinema4D and Blender and parameter packs that allow users to render infinitely complex fractal objects and harness the power of leading professional rendering software outside of 3D fractal programs like Mandelbulber and Mandelbulb 3D.
 

JESPER NYBROE

Jesper Nybroe hails from Denmark and is now located in Germany.  He is a veteran Visual Effects Artist. With almost three decades of experience, he was doing VFX before they were digital. Jesper has been working with some of the best and biggest VFX companies all around the world, and has been involved in countless feature films, music videos, commercials and TV-series, including many award-winning projects.

Jesper was the first Scandinavian Flame Artist, and to this day strongly prefers Flame as a compositing tool.
He first discovered 3D fractals around 2013.

MATTEO SCAPPIN

Matteo Scappin is a 3D fractal artist with training in computer science. His interest in fractal geometry began at 16 years old with a fascination in the Mandelbrot set. He began working in 3D fractal art in 2015 with a focus in animations for events. With an interest in education, innovation, and community building, Scappin became an admin of Mandelbulb Maniacs, the largest 3D fractal community on Facebook, in 2017.

ARTIST STATEMENT

After the introduction of personal computers in the early 1980’s, everything changed. People now had access to digital painting programs. These kept developing over time and soon we also had access to programs that could do 3d graphics. Though these early versions needed a degree in computer science it didn’t take long before they were made more user friendly. By the end of the 1980’s the first ones had possibilities beyond our wildest dreams. Now, only our imagination is the limit!
