Horsthuis uses math and infinite geometric patterns to create mind-bending films that take our imagination on a journey. In a fractal reality, Horsthuis is much like a director or photographer in which he is operating in a world that already exists and it is up to him to search for the right fractal angle.
Julius Horsthuis, whose VFX work has been featured in the Academy Award winning “Manchester by the Sea” (2016) and “Koning van Katoren” (2012), considers his art – “a journey of discovery”, as he uncovers to the eye of the viewer the immensely unique fractal reality. Using fractals to create sci-fi type worlds is something of an outlier when it comes to visual art or motion graphics.
Horsthuis’ work has been featured prominently on music and art festivals worldwide, such as Coachella Music and Arts Festival, IDFA, Art Futura and SAT symposium Montréal. His work has been featured in blogs and news sites such as The Creators Project, Gizmodo, Newsweek, TimeOut and the Vimeo Staff Picks.
