Gestalt

 
Thorsten Fleisch works with digital and experimental film and video art. With materials such as the body, crystals, fire and electricity, he works directly on 16 mm film strips. Crystals are grown on the film and 30,000 volts burn through it. The results are poetic and abstract visual systems with references to catharsis, cosmos and the universe. In 2003 Fleisch received Honorary Mention at Prix Ars Electronica in Linz (Austria) for his computer animated film Gestalt.

In Gestalt Four-dimensional quaternions (fractals) are visualized by projecting them into three-dimensional space. Instead of modeling objects of human imagination the realm of mathematics is explored. Only the variables of one formula (x[n+1]=x[n]^p-c) were changed. It took me about a year to get an idea of the transformations and shapes which could be expressed by this formula. Almost another year was needed to render the sequences which I decided to use.
