Once a month I will send out a fascinating email that will give you new and interesting information about fractals.
The majority of these posts will draw from my thesis, “The Art of Fractals for the Mathematically Challenged”. I am fascinated with fractals but by no means can compute the math.
Blog 1…. here we go!!
One of the most difficult things about being an artist is coming up with new and interesting ideas that are engaging to work on that are artistic and emotional things of beauty. This means that searching for inspiration in an ongoing endeavor for most artists. It was during one such search that I stumbled upon a fractal. There it was on my computer screen, a thing of beauty. I had never seen one and had no idea of how it was created. I wanted, I needed, to know more. Thus began an ongoing exploration into what many consider to be one of the most significant discoveries of our time, the fractal and fractal geometry. The purpose of this blog is to explain what a fractal is, what they can do, why we like them, where they are found and their effects on the world of art.
