This image was made in 1999, and is a variation on one that I created for the January/February round of the Internet Ray Tracing Competition, a geeky graphics competition originally for users of POV-Ray, the free ray-tracer. My image was modelled in 3D Studio Max, not POV-Ray, but it still came 22nd out of 143 entries.

The theme for this round was Imaginary Worlds, and my image was an obscure maths pun about how integers, with their boring, humdrum lives, dream of the exciting lives of imaginary numbers. Yes.
