Artists statement

Space and Light are the 'prior given' of human experience. Virtual Visions explores this idea through images and writings. The images, exhibited as fine art prints, are created with the artist's own software, called RaySculpt. This enables an exploration of the physics and metaphysics of space and light through programming the computer, itself an embodiment of mankind's discoveries of the laws of nature.

Further details on the work are available on the Virtual Visions Website. The full scope of King's research is archived at Mike King's website.
