umbrella sun
The appeal of Greece is somehow spiritual, the spartan geography, the sensation that given such clear light and such blue water we should cast away our worldly belongings and abandon ourselves naked to the elements. The quality of this light is such that it drove the inhabitants to produce artworks which actually use light as a medium, sculptural relief. 

So mystified by the past are we in this place and yet it is our burgeoning future that will define whether or not this symbol of human ideals will cease to endure.  As the economic necessity to perform the many basic functions of living with the aid of computers becomes more apparent, so the way that we interpret the world around us is obliged to conform to a common language. The application of systematic thinking is the highway that leads to the future, but the economic necessity of  effective information-storage is dictating  a series of progressively narrowing portals through which we receive the world.    

'fractal mentality' is the collective name I give to sculptures and sculptural reliefs which acknowledge the digitization of humanity, a crossbreed of a cloned version of computer-graphic solids with something quite its opposite, humane, arcane, and instinctive.

Representing the way that machines understand solids, these investigations  strive to assert an integrity which is inherent in all things around us, attempting to draw into dialogue the distinction between that which can be produced by mathematics and that which can found in nature and in the soul. 

'fractal mentality' utilises a pseudo-mathematical technique to produce objects which resemble ‘wire-frame’ images, the main-stay of computer three dimensional drawing programs and virtual reality to relate to the steady slide of the way we view ourselves into the realm of the mathematical logic of computers.

my name is Toby Short, I undertake commissioned public art, design furniture and create figurative sculptures. I am interested in the space in-between things. In that which defies our immediate perception. My work concerns the discovery of something integral to us all but which is hard to grasp. I am particularly fascinated in the way we view the world via the machines we have created, In the way that computers portray life. The development of this idea I call ‘fractal mentality’. ‘fractal mentality’ can be seen in some sculptures below.
