Site hacked… or not.

Just got an e-mail from DreamHost saying they have disabled a couple things here because some of my files were compromised, blah blah blah. Apparently, nothing has changed. So far. And sorry for the lack of updates for almost a year. Creativity has gone sabbatical.

The chosen ones, part VII

From Gallery 14, “Halo”:

This is one of my favourite images. People tend to say it’s very “spiritual”, even though they don’t know its real name, which could really be suggestive. It was the first image I sent to the exhibition(s) in Spain, and it looked gorgeous printed in a big size and framed. It was my first experience of printing a fractal bigger than the more common and easy A4/A3 sizes, and I was really surprised. The bigger you print them, the more details appear, all the time. It happens to even some of the ugliest images, when they are seen printed in a big size and framed, they change.

I had a few problems with the brazilian mail service though. They charged me a very expensive fee to send it to Spain, and the glass of the frame came there broken (silly me, I used glass, should have tried something else). They said (obviously) that it wasn’t their fault, despite all the huge FRAGILE signs attached to the package. Since then whenever I need to send some of my fractals elsewhere I try to send it unframed and make all the framing job in the destination. It’s more expensive to do the framing in places like Europe or USA, but it’s safer. Framing them here is quite complicated, people aren’t used to frame this kind of work and I had a couple damaged prints, not to mention all the problems with the shipping – and I didn’t use the cheapest option!
