LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A spectacular new art exhibit that combines light, sound and mathematics to create a kaleidoscope-like experience promises to take visitors into another dimension.Memorial Service Held For Sandra Mizer, 13-Year-Old Killed In Lucerne Valley Hit-And-Run
The audio-visual show features “a mind-bending journey through the infinite geometric patterns of fractal worlds” that takes visitors on an “exploration from our recent past to an ideal future — one that returns to nature and math as a source for inspiration.”
“A lot of folks have told us it looks like you’re inside of a kaleidoscope,” ARTECHOUSE marketing and communications manager Andrew Albigese tells Reuters. “We’ve also heard that people say it’s like stepping into a sci-fi world or even being transmitted to a totally new dimension.”
This just in: “Geometric Properties” by @JuliusHorsthuis is opening March 1st at ARTECHOUSE NYC!

The exhibit uses fractals — mathematical equations represented as infinitely repeating shapes and patterns. Horsthuis runs the equations through the software Mandelbulb 3D, which then manifests into the art.
“Julius, as I know, came across fractals while doing research for a separate project and instantly felt a connection with them,” Albigese explains. “He was fascinated by how through mathematics, you could take someone on a journey through almost an entirely new world.”
The installation also features original soundtracks by Michael Stearns as well as David Levy.
“Our hope is that folks that see this installation will have a moment of self-reflection and hopefully they leave feeling a bit inspired and maybe even optimistic, a little bit more optimistic than we’ve been in the last year as we move forward,” Albigese says.MORE NEWS: Cal ISO Issues Flex Alert For Thursday Due To Heat Wave
