Sunday Squee: Spyralle

Lighthouse Duty

One of the people who does the most with textures is Kerryth Tarantal the creator of Spyralle, a clothing and furniture store filled to the brim with fractals. If you haven't run into fractals before, they're an amazing discovery of mathematics and also a natural phenomena - and offshoot of a tendency for nature to repeat patterns in both directions, smaller and larger. The roots of human understanding go back to the 17th century in the studies of recursion until the term was finally coined in the 1970s by Benoît Mandelbrot. He described them as "beautiful, damn hard, increasingly useful" but it wasn't until computers became ubiquitous that their true utility for creation was unlocked.

Down the Stairs

Critical in re-creating natural figures in digital worlds, fractals also can be colored and reproduced - and its this from that most people outside of mathematics, like myself, are familiar with. This is also the form that Tarantal makes use of in her creations, from coloring her chunky furniture and buildings to her boho-style clothing, and even on a wide variety of jewelry, masks, and fantastical accessories. The colors she uses are bright and clear, and she places the different swirling features beautifully on clothes and jewels alike. She seems to work mostly from the Mandelbrot and Julia sets with their amazing coils and curves rendered in stunning shades. I think I like the jewelry the best, the boundless glory of fractals somehow captured in rectangles and bands of brilliance. In all the many facets, though, Spyralle will continue to bring fractals to the grid, a truly unique style that everyone can enjoy.
