I'd like to share with you some information about fractal art which has greatly influenced my fascination with the patterns and not-so-random formations of the natural world.

Typical Mandelbrot fractal

Fractal art is a form of algorithmic art created by calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results as still digital images, animations, and media. Fractal art developed from the mid-1980s onwards. It is a genre of computer art and digital art which are part of new media art. The mathematical beauty of fractals lies at the intersection of generative art and computer art. They combine to produce a type of abstract art.

Fractal art 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 are considered as icons of fractal art.

Fractal images are admired because of their perceived harmony and relationship with nature. This is typically achieved by the patterns which emerge from the balance of order and chaos.

In much of my work, I have attempted to explore the relationships between order and chaos, light and dark, shapes and patterns in the natural world
