Chaos, Archetypes, and the All-integrating Field

Rob Harle, Artist and Independent Scholar, Deakin University Alumni Society

Abstract: This essay explores the notion that the fundamental ontology of the universe is an all-integrating field. The process of chaos operates within this field as do other phenomena such as gravity and electromagnetic force. I argue that there are no objects only events, that is, dynamic continual process is the basic building block of all existence. My accompanying artworks illustrate these principles using the beauty of computer generated fractals combined with digitally manipulated, figurative images.

Keywords: fractals, all-integrating field, process philosophy, archetypes, chaos, zero-point field, computational art
