I love fractal art. I could stare at it all day long. I find it fascinating (in the literal sense of the word). But I seem to be in the minority.
Let me clarify that by "fractal art" I do not simply mean "pictures of fractals".
Random examples of what I do mean: http://killythirsk.deviantart.com/ar...ucus-293234985 http://www.deviantart.com/art/Fractal-Art-20-104813488
I'll admit I can't do much with fractals myself. Perhaps there's a clue there. The learning curve is too steep, or the path from "here" to "there" too opaque.
But even when googling for this post, most of the examples I liked best were found in wallpaper collections (IMO "wallpaper" is the visual equivalent of elevator music).
My personal taste leans towards the more abstract. I find the more literal depictions tend to be cloying and cliched.
So are these the reasons fractal art doesn't have a larger following?
