Mandelbrot meets mutant mandala for fractal modulation; morphological mutations over a fractal canvas.

The physical surface explores the fractal properties of hexagonal tessellation. The hexagon is the most efficient way for the transmission of energy, in nature.

This pattern, which is known as the Flower of Life* in sacred geometry, stems from the Seed of Life, a figure with the potential for growth and expansion.

The hexagon, self-contained at different levels, integrates masculine and feminine energies with implosive and explosive features which, in turn, reflect the process of growth within life. This figure is also associated with structures found in nature, such as snowflakes, quartz crystals o beehives.
