A Clockwork Splatter (Romp or Riot) by slestualenergie A Clockwork Splatter (Romp or Riot) by slestualenergie
I wanted to do something a little differently this time. By turning a fractal into a painting! I would like to give a shout out to ChaosFissure and for his tutorial on how to paint fractals using Chaotica. Which is in the link below. I also used GIMP to scale and sharpen the image to make it look less blurry.

It took me while to make this. Probably 5 hours. And I gave about 12 hours to render for some reason Chaotica still renders in sleep mode. When finished I called my work "A Clockwork Splatter" because it looks like a hot mess (it's also a play on the name A Clockwork Orange). A wonderful hot mess. The definition of romp is "an enjoyable time of rough and noisy play" and a riot is "someone or something that is very funny". When I think about the word romp, I think about the middle ages and the concept of being happy go merry and having a good time. When I think about the word riot, I think about Paramore's album, the punk movement, and laugh out loud comedy. So, I find it to be strange that the same word can make you laugh could be the same word that used to describe a violent act.  

So do you think it's a romp or a riot? I think it's both. What do you think?

P.S. This is a shameless plug. I would like to a shoutout to Ethan and Hila, I recommend checking out their channel and if it wasn't for them, I wouldn't have thought about the romp or riot concept.

Even though this piece is literally just a hot mess of colour, you can really recognize the figurative meaning and it's...somehow endearing? I'm drawn to it in a way I can't understand.
I think your definition of riot fits it best. A movement. A movement for something meaningful. When I think of riot I think of protests, like the peace movement or the women's rights movement or the gay liberation movement. And that's kind of what I think of when I see this picture. A riot.

It's very interesting in a way due to the fact it has a surrealist approach to it. Very nicely done!

I love this. It's so abstract and yet you can see there there is something distinct underneath. It is, but it isn't. <3 it!
