My NYE submission. The title originates from two things:
1. the overall appearance of planes of wafer-thin marble
2. the resemblance to Spurn Point (though I wonder whether Sperm Point wouldn't also be a good name ;))
I often consider what it would be like to live at the end of such a spit, taking the full brunt of elemental fury... :O I fancy also a resemblance to our own planet seen from space, with its thin layer of wispy atmosphere.

My entry for the December contest 'The end of all things'. The 'theme' of the contest is a recapitulation of lessons learned, fractal-wise, over the previous year. This is the final offering this year in a style which, as far as I know, I developed. It's also the last clue in the breadcrumb trail of how the style is achieved: the final piece of the puzzle is, appropriately, the final transform. I have used curl, boarders, polar and linear/spherical to achieve this series. Previous clues:

"By this time, the snow was falling thickly and the air was brittle with cold. And as I approached collapse on that hillside, the view began to change: the falling snow assumed a definite pattern, arches, or fans, and then the whole appeared to break apart into slices, and the slices fragmented further until a kind of aperture, almost a mouth, formed and pulsed irregularly with a golden light. And that palpitating light communicated to me a message of universal joy and celebration - I understood that this was timed to coincide with our seasonal earthly festivals, the better to tap the positive vibe that briefly relieved internecine differences. So I returned to human habitation, aglow despite the cold, brimful of fresh meaning for our solstitial jubilations and feeling on the brink of a new-minted world."
Third of that style I'm slowly unveiling: add 10% oscilloscope on the elliptic transform to achieve the separations.

I cannot be entirely sure why I switched language for these. But it happened quite without premeditation and seems to fit, so there we are ;P First of a mini-series in this quadri-transformed lazysusan style. Lava-lamp colours scratchy-twist bubbly-clown faces into ephemeral existence :D
