Yamen is the creator of Complicated Reality, and an indie artist himself. After a decade of working on video games, he's found a new calling as an artist and designer. He works with fractals, iterated function systems, neural networks, and other generative art processes to produce intricate digital art. He's driven by a desire to wrangle complicated systems into aesthetically pleasing results, and explores the boundary between chaos and order. He also writes small sci-fi stories, motivational musings, and inspirational parables with a uniquely optimistic but grounded futurist and posthumanist themes. When he's not lost in his own mind, he cares for two cats and a one-eyed puppy with his partner in Oregon while curating a collection of board games that get played less than they deserve.
