Mountains of the Sea
Project info

The project "Mountains of the Sea" is an exploration of fractals in nature, the Japanese tradition of suiseki (stone viewing) and the Japanese Rock Garden. At the same time it is a meditation about perception.
All the rocks and rock groups in the photos are small stones in the Baltic Sea and the project uses the distortions made possible by the camera to enable "seeing".
While fractals are mostly associated with small features in nature (like ferns and sea shells), the Japanese traditions of suiseki and rock gardens remind us that fractality underlies also the big features of nature.
