One of the ladies I interact with, from time to time, is the rather talented Caryl N. You can find her on Flickr, if you click the link that is embedded into her name.
Anyhow, somehow, we got corresponding after she saw my post called “Lokispeakz: Where”, and from there, I ended up in the rather wonderful world of fractals.
I did read about fractals a year and a half back, and vowed to come back to it, but never did. The world of fractals is mesmerizing, to say the least. They are repeating patterns that are often found in nature.
To quote from fractalfoundation.org, read this definition:
“A fractal is a never ending pattern. Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales. The are driven by repeating a simple process again and again in an ongoing feedback loop. Driven by recursion, fractals are images of dynamic systems, the picture of Chaos”.
It is a rather simple and complete definition, I may add.
The most common fractals that are generated by computer are Mandelbrot sets and Julia sets. These are named after Benoit Mandelbrot and Gaston Julia, and are independent of each other.
Enjoy! While I make some feeble attempts to delve deeper into this. My mind is spinning, and wondering about how I can use these creatively.
Oh…. using the power of technology, i created the pattern above…
