New stripy trees have been discovered in the Big Rock Candy Mountains! Oh wait, these are actually paintings. Not content with the existing patterns and geometries found in nature, Jason Middlebrook has taken it upon himself to paint new hypnotic rhythms onto slivers and cross-sections of trees, offering an alternative version seen through his eyes. Take that Fibonacci! The effects left us all pretty impressed – if only these hybrid Bridget Riley-esque trees crossed with sticks of rock actually existed, it would make for a brighter, happier world.
