Reality is complicated.
I'm here to help.

I'm Yamen, a Laser Fractal Space Wizard from the stormy side of Oregon. In 2018, I reconnected with my creative spirit and unleashed a flood of creative energy. Complicated Reality is where I collect my best art, writing, and other experiments. I specialize in fractal art, playful poetry, and graphic design, but I also like to play with lasers, neural networks, and anything with a print head.

Ask a Wizard

Calling all curious minds! Answering questions is my favorite form of magic, so ask whatever is on your mind. Ask about art, ask about storytelling, ask about technology, ask about anxiety, ask about life, ask about magic, ask about love. From the serious to the silly, the practical to the philosophical, the simple to the strange, I'll answer any question asked in good faith.

If you submit a question, you're giving me permission to send you an email in response to it. I will not use the provided email for marketing purposes, or sell it to any third-parties. Please only submit one question per day, if you want to have a more involved conversation, send me an e-mail or find me on Discord.
