Artist statement — Sara McCormick.

My work is a form of digital art know as fractals: mathematical and natural forms that exhibit what’s known as self-similarity. Using a computer I render mathematical formulas into art of infinite depth and detail. More than anything else for me, my work represents a real, tangible connection to nature. The patterns I work with are the same patterns that make up the universe. When I create, I know that I am creating something that is both a part of myself, my physical body and the world as a whole. So much of this world can be described by these same simple patterns, so that when I create, I feel as if I am a part of evolution.
