It's a digital art form based on computer chips. \r\n\r\nI've worked with computer systems for over 40 years, so chip technology is something I'm familiar with, but I'm by no means an expert. ChipScapes came about as a confluence of hobbies. I am a collector of vintage computer chips, and I am an avid photographer. I had a challenge communicating my fascination with chips with my family and friends. These funny bug-like devices couldn't tell their own stories :) I began taking pictures of these microscopic chips, framing the chips with their photographs, and writing stories about them. I found art to be the communication vehicle I needed. To me, the sharing of stories, the art, and the beauty is what ChipScapes are all about. It is about preserving these chips, which today are being ground up and melted for their precious metals. I love the creation stories, the marketing challenges, and the corporate intrigue that swirled around them. \r\n\r\nI am grateful for the support I have received and the opportunities that I have been given. I could never have guessed where my artworks would find homes. However, I currently have patrons in over 20 countries, world-class companies have commissioned pieces, and very prestigious museums have collected my artwork. \r\n\r\nWe can live our lives ignoring the beauty all around us and just see gray, but I choose to seek out beauty and share it with others.

Fractal mathematics is very closely related to the study of Chaos and fractal geometry is manifested throughout the natural world. Fractal art is recursive by nature and is themed by shapes or patterns that are repeated at different dimensions. A unique attribute of fractal art is that it contains infinite detail, therefore any section of the graph (no matter how small) can be magnified and rendered at high resolution to any size without losing detail.\r\n\r\nJoseph Presley has been working with fractal art for over 20yrs and will be exhibiting some of his recent still works in the form of limited edition fine art prints that are ready for matting and framing as well as finished masterworks such as gallery wrapped canvas prints embellished with clear acrylics and hi-res prints on metal.

A sensory channel (sight, sound, feel, and smell) and an intellectual channel that tries to makes sense of how we feel and put it into context.\r\nWhen your sensory channel is blocked or occupied, your experiences aren’t as intense or vivid. In other words, when you’re physically occupied with something (squeezing the stress ball) your mind isn’t focused or concentrated on whatever is stressing you out. This is why some of the best stress reducers are physical activities. Let’s create one of these together.
