Art Chaos in Motion - Levi van Veluw captures the essence of the sinister and the sublime in self-ordering icosahedrons

Perfectly symmetric geometric shapes drift through a shadowy space (representation of van Veluw’s childhood bedroom).  It could be the moment a cluster of nanomech slips over the event horizon and makes the leap of intelligence to combine and work together in a swarm.  It could be something more weird and outre, elements of a cosmic entity From Beyond the Quantisphere, rendered into human reality by a fool reading from a forbidden book or a random freak of meta-nature; it arrives, sentient and malevolent, probing the boundaries of this weird, fleshly and organic Universe.  Or it could be a 150 dice for Dungeons & Dragons thrown across the air by a petulant teenager.

Certainly an eye-catching piece of artwork. And reminds me vividly of a recurring dream / night terror I used to suffer from when I was a child.
