In Memory of PCA

I’ve just received news that a dear internet friend died on August 2, 2010.

PCA was not a religious person.  But I have no doubt that he was a kindred spirit.  Even if he didn’t know it – then. And I trust in the Mercy of God.  PCA was funny, quirky, and cared passionately about other people, the fate of his nation, and the fate of the world.  He would have given you the shirt off his back.  But in the end he learned to receive that kind of thing from others, as he faced a dire illness with no health insurance.  In addition to tears and tributes from many on the internet, he will be missed by friends and family.  Because he was such a private person it apparently took some time and some doing before his family were able to connect with anyone on the internet – to inform them of his passing.

He has receive the amazing tribute of a post put up by the Moderator at TPM Cafe – under his TPM moniker, PseudoCyAnts.

See here, here and here for fractal art by our dear, departed friend.  (Alan, in particular, has done spectacular work at the first link, putting up an entire blog and animating Cy's beautiful fractals!)

Farewell, dear PCA.  Memory Eternal…

I have posted some motion graphics files I made from Cy's fractal art on my blog:

There are more image files I have not yet worked with, and I will be putting up others as I do more.

Thera - if you can update, I have made a site dedicated only to Cy's work - and some small motion bits I've done with it:

Thanks for the reminder, Alan. I actually put that up over at my other blog... and forgot to do it here. :(

I will surely add it to the post.

Peace be with you. And thanks for all that you've done to preserve and animate his work. :-)
