This piece is outstanding. You show excellent technique with the 2-D aspect of a photography piece with the 3-D qualities from the Mandelbulb3D on designing a remarkable cubed figure. The vision of this is clear and imaginative. I like how that this shows figure ground relationships with the hand and the cubed figure, the darkend backround, and it also has excellent proportion/scale proprieties. Their is clear indication of texture since it appears that the figurine is of a plastic material and repetition from the series of cubes. From previous works of you (the artist) your voice is defiantly heard and because of that (whether people have seen or are new to your work) it engages the viewer with the visual qualities of the complexity of your work and on how inventive you are with your original ideas. I (the writer) personally love how the piece seems to appear like a cubed world of infinite possibilities using imagination and understanding of geometry. Overall it's of superb quality. Thank you for allowing me to critique your piece. ^_^

Okay, 3D printing fractals is quite nifty. Maybe you can upscale/re-engineer this thing to make it into a pendulum lamp or something! I think it could cast an amazing shadow!

Think about it. Since both 3D printing and 3D fractals are pretty recent, it's a completely untapped market with a low resource cost. I mean, I would do it if I knew anyone with a reliable 3D printer.

First thing that came to mind: complicated apartment complex. That's in a good way, though; the design is interesting and it's food for thought.
