Fire and Ice

I began making the video with the following picture. From that starting point I applied to the original image and came out with something quite a bit different from what I began with.

I began doing this kind of art with an idea drawn from the Taoist tradition.  I thought of the empty bowl.  A discussion of the idea which inspired and informed me can be read at the Personal Tao.

The idea I begin with is that there is virtually unlimited potential in anything. This virtue is present and observed in the operating principles of the natural world. I think of it as an analog of the E= MC2  principle applied to consciousness.

I never cease to surprise myself when I see what I end up with.  In this instance I began with the photograph of a bud encased in ice. It held the potential to produce something completely unexpected.

I added some of my standard "Fire People" characters as I saw how the original was morphing.
