Jason Padgett has Acquired Savant Syndrome. When he began making fractal art, he had no traditional math training, and has only since become a student in order to better describe the geometry and numbers that he inherently sees in the world.

His pieces are reminiscent of sketches by early pioneers such as Da Vinci – you can almost feel the thought and concentration reaching outwards.  If there were such thing as blueprints for life, this would be them; postmodern entanglements representing the particle world. But they also embody sentimentality – one can’t help but be reminded of playing with Spirograph tools as a kid, and wondering why they ever went out of fashion.

Jason Padgett’s fractal drawings are incredible and inspiring for many reasons. At first, I thought the most incredible reason was the story behind the acquisition of his gift: walking home one night he was maliciously attacked, causing some long-term repercussions to his brain. Scans revealed that Padgett’s brain changed itself to compensate for the damage received, and shortly after, he began to see the world in a different way.

But then I thought the most incredible thing about these drawings was the math behind them; the understanding that fractals arise from limitations, and their relation to E=MC^2. His drawing of E=MC^2 shows that the structure of space-time at the quantum level could be fractal in design. 

But now I think I have finally settled on the utmost incredible part….

…They’re all drawn by hand, with just a pencil, a ruler, and a compass.
