The greatest honor an artist can receive is receiving recognition in the form of cash payment for his work from a fellow artist. Here are two profiles of artists who have purchased Harmony sculptures in the past year for their private art collection:
Ken is credited by Benoit Mandelbrot, the father of fractal geometry, with being “the first true fractal-based artist“. Ken is an algorithmic artist, who programs mathematics in the computer to represent landscapes replete with mountains, sky, water, and mirages. His work has appeared at the Guggenheim, in National Geographic, and in the movies ‘Titanic‘ and ‘Apollo 13‘.
Ken possesses a rare mix of skills and interests. He served for six years as an ‘Artist in Residence’ in the Yale math department, and as a professor of computer science at George Washington University. He is currently the Director of Advanced 3D Research at MetaCreations in Carpenteria, California, where he’s working on the next version of Bryce. Ken’s a big participant of the Annual ‘Burning Man’ festival in Nevada, and enjoys rocketry as a hobby. We’re proud to have him as part of our laser art family.
Kevin is a 3rd generation professional photographer. While his grandfather is reknown for his work in Hollywood during its golden era, Kevin focuses his camera lens on nature settings. He has a sharp eye for desert scenes, and his black and white Death Valley images are visually arresting. Kevin has experimented with laser photography in the past, and we look forward to displaying his images in our gallery in the near future.
Kevin has recently relocated to Seattle. With its vivid colors, and its rainy/foggy skyline, he deems Seattle to be ‘a great laser town!‘. Kevin will be publishing his Mexican photoshoot on his website (currently under construction), featuring his soul stirring ‘Day of the Dead‘ images of the celebration near Vera Cruz. Thanks to Kevin for his recent down payment on our new Symphony laser sculpture.
