As I go about updating this website, I’ve also been reviewing my opinions about fractals and art since I started to consciously regard this hobby as an artistic expression. I have been reconsidering what I said in my old writings, and revisiting the judgment of other people involved in this field. All in all, it seems no new creative ideas have emerged, though: in all appearances, the fractal world, like myself, came to a standstill in 2007. New programs emerged, for sure; known ones were updated, as…Continue Reading “Fractal art theorizing”
It is so easy to stumble upon spirals while exploring the world of fractals, and it’s so easy to find them so appealing that every explorer is sure to end with a dozen of these wonderful creatures after each jump into the pools of never-ending images. This one was found using Tiera-Zon.
Choosing a name is not an easy task, even if what you’re naming is a modest website. From my point of view, it has to represent the site’s content and purpose –somehow–, which in this case is to showcase the fractal pictures and other related content I author occasionally. By definition, a name is an identification, or identifier, a means to distinguish the given from the rest of the world it relates to. And for that reason, the more unique, the better, first, because it won’t confuse visitors,…Continue Reading “Name divisions, dimensions and symmetries”
A few days ago I was saying how I think my pictures are kind of “traditional”, as in a little bit outmoded. And so they are… if you compare them to what people with more recent –sophisticated– fractal generators can do (the software used to render mine, long forgotten by their own authors, miraculously run in Windows 10). Even examining their style, anyone can assert they predate this millennium. With their coarse contours and somewhat eroded colors, they’re kind of too distant from today’s standards. But that’s what a style…Continue Reading “Quaint name for fractal dimensions”
