Ariana Boaventura (Brazil)

In the “Chaos” series, which consists of four images, I drew my inspiration from fractal theory - a series of transformations that holds the same features at any scale of size. In each image, I have used the same infinitely repeated digital pattern of varying colours and vanishing point perspectives. Using square images, and arranging them in a greater square, I have been able to represent continuous fractal structures producing a greater interaction between images.
