The Flame Algorithm
Software Art

Draves is the creator of the Fractal Flames algorithm, which has been used in numerous projects, the most prominent being Electric Sheep, generated by the artist himself. This consists of a distributed computing project, through a free downloadable screensaver that generates animations using the idle time of all the "sleeping" machines connected to this network. Thus, when a computer goes to sleep, it sends a portion of data to the system server, which the server uses to create a new fractal animation and send it back to the computer.
