As the seasons turn over on each other I love seeing the way that nature moves in predictable patterns. We sometimes think of nature as random and messy, when it is actually mostly predictable and precise.

Russian artist, Tatiana Plakhova’s work takes photographs of natural forms and overlays them with geometric patterns of dots and bits of light.

The result is a mix of shimmering, yet systematic, forms. The heavily controlled and the seemingly random are both beautiful.

Some of her work is more abstract than others, but the kaleidoscope of light and shadow is similar. She says that her work takes elements and inspiration from science, energetics, space, various kinds of “nets”, as well as biology.

I can see all those influences in this work, as well as something a little extra.

Her computer-generated images seem to radiate with life. It is both beautiful and a little eerie.

Have an otherworldly beautiful Tuesday,

Sarah from Design Flourishes
