Fractal portrait

This stainless steel concave dish by Anish Kapoor, an untitled work from 2010 at the High Art Museum in Atlanta, uses triangular patterns based on fractals to split the viewer and anything else nearby into many kaleidoscopic versions. As a photographer, it was incredibly fun to see my camera reflected in odd juxtapositions of shapes. Because of my many years recording animals for nature sound albums, I was equally fascinated by the acoustic properties of the sculpture. Its parabolic shape allowed a whisper to be amplified across the large room where it was displayed, much to the amusement of a variety of museum visitors. I am now using this fractal version of myself as my new Instagram portrait.
