Fractal Worlds by Julius Horsthuis

When I learned about this gallery called ARTECHOUSE where they bring together art, science, and technology, I had to make my way there…even though it was in Washington, DC.

Fractal Worlds by Julius Horsthuis is a visual journey through mind-bending sci-fi worlds and infinite 3D geometric patterns. Incorporating both projection and virtual reality elements, the exhibition transports viewers to another dimension.

What is impressive about the space is the knowledgeable staff, the grandness of the space and the gallery’s ability to make sure there are multiple opportunities and touch points to experience VR, AR and immersive technologies. You have to check-out their cocktail bar.

Horsthuis uses math and infinite geometric patterns to create mind-bending images and films that take your imagination on a journey. They are mesmerizing and in a fractal reality, Horsthuis is much like a director or photographer in which he is operating in a world that already exists and it is up to him to search for the right fractal angle. It’s magnetic and awe-inspiring because it is nothing like you have experienced before but immediately hooks you in because its both familiar and alien at the same time.
