Fractals! My fascination with Fractals!
Fractal Art takes Fractals and enhances their beauty even more.
A fractal is a never-ending self-similar pattern across different scales.
A Fractal is a pattern that repeats forever, and every part of the Fractal, regardless of how much you zoomed in or zoomed out – it looks very similar to the whole image.
Fractal patterns are familiar, since nature is full of fractals. For instance: trees, rivers, coastlines, mountains, clouds, seashells and more.
Take a tree. Each tree branch, from the trunk to the tips, is a copy of the one that came before it. This is a basic principle that we see over and over again in the fractal structure of organic life forms throughout the natural world.
Abstract fractals – such as the Mandelbrot Set – can be generated by a computer calculating a simple equation over and over.
Fractal art is rarely drawn or painted by hand. It is usually created indirectly with the assistance of fractal-generating software. In some cases, other graphics programs are used to further modify the images produced. The Julia set and Mandelbrot sets can be considered the best knowns forms of fractal art.
