"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks.  Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story." ~Linda Hogan

Fractals 

Math & Art based on Dynamic Systems, Self-Similarity & Endless Scales

What are Fractals?

Fractals are mathematically plotted & computer generated representations of non-linear, dynamic events.  Fractals inherently possess many artistic qualities.  In short they are mathematical images of a Chaotic event.  (A chaotic event is an unpredictable occurrence by which a stable and predictable system, changes into an unstable and unpredictable system.  Examples of a chaotica event is an avalanche.  Though there are boundaries, namely the mountain, upon which the avalanch falls, the many events which happen within those boundaries is unpredictable.  

All fractals have the qualities of repeating, or endlessly repeating, scales and self-similarity.  

The fascination with fractals is partly due to their connection with nature and real life.  Repetition and Self-Similar Scales & Forms are found throughout nature. 

Fractals are mathematically descriptive and artistically appealing.  Both Fractal Geometry and Fractal Art have been around since the mid 1980s and they are developing and growing fields.  Here are some sites dedicated to Fractal Geometry & Fractal Art & related issues:
