For over twenty years Michael Winstone has worked within the digital domain. His work embraces a wide range of digital media, including, 2D, 3D, 4D, time-based installation and interactive video animation.
He has used various 3D volume rendering programs for mathematical visualization of fractal forms which can be translated into volumetric art.
These simple fractal forms are repeated to create complex structures that have self-similarity in texture and shape. GPS coordinates, place and title each work of art.
His art examines the human body within the context of the family structure, it's relationship with nature and in particular the anatomy of trees and their architecture. It identifies the space they coexist in and the questions that are raised from that union.
