Machine Elf 16 - Creator of Worlds | Trey Ratcliff & Sam Wave

"Creator of Worlds" explores chaos and order and creation from nothing. The actual work is a high resolution physical installation about 75 inches across and is embedded in a wall, running in a continuous loop forever. Here's a photo of what the art installation looks like on the wall:

The visual art consists of mathematical fractals that are changing, growing, and being destroyed over time and then recreated from the void. A collaboration with composer Sam Wave we started with the concept of a heartbeat - the heartbeat of a mother that an infant hears in the womb. The piece demonstrates how life at all stages and throughout the course of its journey has the influence of both masculine and feminine energy guiding the entities evolution.

For us, this work at times reminded us of coral and represented life before personified life. It allows the participant to let go of thoughts and enter a more calm reality. This is the first work in the series made by Trey and Sam. To learn more about Sam head here and if you'd like to grab one contact [email protected]

Made in the Mountains of Queenstown, New Zealand.
