I don’t pretend to understand how it works because it is all based on maths (eek!) but I’ve been having fun on my photo editing software, adding a fractal trace to some of my photos. Here’s an example involving my printers’ drawer slowly filling up with miniature obects,
How cool is that?
For those of you want a bit more info, here’s the Wikipedia definition of fractal art:
Fractal art is created by calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results as still images, animations, music, or other media. Fractal art is usually created indirectly with the assistance of fractal-generating software, iterating through three phases: setting parameters of appropriate fractal software, executing the possibly lengthy calculation and evaluating the product. In some cases, other graphics programs are used to further modify the images produced. This is called post-processing.
See what I mean!
