Paul Griffitts always wanted to be an explorer. His earliest memories are of a town that no longer exists, and maybe that's as good a place to start as any. Valsetz, once located at the headwaters of the Siletz River in Oregon's Coast Range, now only exists in old photographs and in memories of... the people who lived there. He spent his summers exploring and running wild through the forests and glades in the surrounding wilderness.
While he was seduced away from his first love, science, by the Siren call of literature, he never completely forgot his foundations and always maintained a keen interest in physics, archaeology, geology, computer-aided design, and even animation Paul found himself particularly attracted to the interface of science and art. It is there, he's discovered, that he can truly explore and, with the aid of advanced technology, discover mysterious new worlds. He has only really just begun to investigate these strange realms, but he's bringing back proof of their existence.
Paul sincerely hopes you find the results of his fractal explorations intriguing. Perhaps their very strangeness and unfamiliarity will get under your skin, the way it has his, and prompt you to investigate this fascinating realm that remained hidden from us for so long.
