SAY IT

Fractalis is a study in progress, and I want your input on how It's going, and how to improve. What works, and what doesn't? This two-bit wants your two-cents, so chime in now.

ABSTRACT

FRACTALIS

Fractalis is a collection of 3D fractal paintings I have created using various 2D/3D fractal engines and techniques.

It is a comprehensive study of fractals primarily from the computational artistic perspective. It was conceived and executed as a project to serve two purposes. First, to educate and help people understand the simple beauty and complex magnitude of the visualization of a math equation. The second is to use the random and chaotic nature of these shapes to paint in a very abstract way that showcases the majesty of these enigmatic algorithms.

In this study I endeavored to utilize every technique I have learned and developed over my decades of artistic training and creative exercise. It was very engaging to manage all the components of this study and show the way a larger studio would for a client or museum. My goal is to have an engaging experience that the viewer will walk away from with a better understanding and deeper appreciation of the capricious and infinite fractal.
