simplex by hypnothalamus simplex by hypnothalamus
The world is not divided into good and evil.
It is made up of atoms that have both traits.
A system with only one component cannot exist.
A world with opposites is perfect.


simplex = the simplest element (Latin for "simple, pure, plain")
atom = from the Greek atomos: "something that cannot be divided further"

___

ZBrush + Photoshop

I know it would make a nice sculpture... actually when I work on something (draw/paint) I also think about making a sculpture, but I'm really behind with the sculptures :)

I absolutely love the texture and the concept as usual is amazing!!
The execution though, is even better!! The expressions seem to perfectly encompass the emotions and traits and the duality and conflict really come across clearly - good luck again!!

Atoms can be divided though into even simpler partials.
"Atoms are the smallest neutral particles into which matter can be divided by chemical reactions. … Atoms consist of protons and neutrons within the nucleus. Within these particles, there are smaller particles still which are then made up of even smaller particles still."

when I said atom I was referring to an actual indivisible element and not the actual particles that were just thought to be indivisible (I have a physics diploma so I should know :D)
the idea I had once is that you need at least two basic elements to make something - a binary system with zeros and ones arranging themselves in different configurations
I just used a metaphor here, so I was not trying to describe this physical world at its smallest scale
thanks

Your welcome, I didn't mean to disrespect you. Your art always astounds and I wish I could have seen the show but alas I live far away.

interestingly enough when the the smaller partials are arranged by opposing polarity with the corresponding forces. It is predicted (some of the parts we still haven't found yet) that they match up all match up in a curtain way (I forgot the name of the shape).

it's a 3d sculpture in ZBrush
I used Photoshop to combine views with different textures rendered in ZBrush and for color adjustement and the shadow on the background
