a fractal manipulation version of Icarus falling cause he got too close to the sun
more on the mythology of Icarus found here [link] (good old wikipedia)

fractal manipulation created using fractals rendered in apophysis and edited together using photoshop

Edit: work in progress of this can be found in my scraps
