One fun feature of many escape time fractals is that they are self-similar. By zooming in on the tendrils surrounding the top bulb in the previous image we find a minibrot.
OK, time for another reboot of my web site. I will showcase computer generated art. I plan to include many types of computer art. My interested in computer art solidified when mathematics, art, and computer programming came together in a Scientific American article in 1985. And then with the 1986 book The Beauty of Fractals by Heinz-Otto Peitgen and Peter Richter.
Fractals will be the starting point for this blog. In particular escape time fractals. Wikipedia knows everything, and explains Fractals better than I can. Today’s image is of a specific type of escape time fractal, the Mandelbrot set. Again, I will let Wikipedia link provide the details.
