  • Playing with Fractals

    Is there any use in Fractals for our painting bits and pieces?

    Maybe as overlays or masks, or even colour overlays?

    Check out some of these...

    Fluffbutt:
    I do like fractals and you bring up an interesting point. I looked at the one called "Genetic Tampering, editing our future" and thought why not modify it. With the little circles cut them out and place a persons history in there. Example start at the upper right and show a fetus (kind of like in the movie 2001) and work thru a life cycle to a funeral.

    A questions is there software that produces fractal images and if so where can you get it? Also is there a way to control the amount of busyness in a fractal in most fractals they seem really all over the place like a kaleidoscope.

    Thanks

      hi bob,


      concerning fractals : make a search for fractal generators and you'll find plenty. There are even some free about

        to get a freeware Fractal Explorer it's brilliant!!

        yes - edit the formula (if you don't know 4 dimensional match (and who does really) just PLAY!!), and lower the 'iterations' (it's depth really).

          Also note that by their nature fractals are recursive - very much like a kaleidoscope.

          In fact a true fractal really goes down forever cycling itself over and over. Just look at the default Mandelbrot, look to the left a bit then zoom in - oooh another Mandebrot inside the first.. and so on, until the limits of OUR math (not the fractal).

            Fluffbutt and Gina:
            Thank you both for the fractal generators sites. Fluffbutt, I guess you can see I can only count to 100, math just escapes me but thanks for the explanation on fractals.
            Thanks
            Bob
