I was really excited to connect with this amazing artist, Tom Beddard, who kindly allowed us to use his work in the cover art for our latest episode of the HumanCurrent podcast. I was looking for an image that would communicate something I saw in a dream, a sort of "hive mind" made of interrelated ecosystems. And there it was, a 3D fractal world.
Tom is a laser physicist who fell in love with fractal geometry and now creates these intricate and otherworldly 3D renderings, which are a perfect visual example of complex systems. I mean, how trippy is this stuff?!
