It is fun to see science and art melt together. My scientific stuff never looked that beautiful, which is why I used to run a fractal-rendering program after work. :) I am trying to create digitally lichtemberg figures as they are a special type of fractals. So far I have not seen it in the random creations.

Awesome work here- love it. Did you use to work at the SciTech museum in Aurora? I think we worked together there in 96-97.

Unfortunately I can't use the accelerators at Fermilab for this, for a couple reasons. Most of them produce proton beams rather than electron beams, energies are typically too high, and also there's really no procedure to get time on them for personal use.
