The Art Piece - Fractal Zoom
Fractals are infinitely satisfying. Found in nature, science, and art, these infinitely complex shapes make for stunning visuals that lend themselves well to aesthetic applications.
This framed premium gallery wrap canvas is just that - a fractal zoom image that is as fascinating as it is pleasing to the eye.
Rendered in golds, blues, and blacks, this print is designed to bridge the gap between art and science, creating an aesthetic application of one of the world's most interesting phenomena: fractals.
Fractals are infinitely complex shapes that are self-similar across different scales. These fascinating patterns are never-ending, making them both satisfying and interesting to witness.
Mandelbrot and the Mandelbrot Set
We have Benoit Mandelbrot to thank for the invention of the mathematics of fractal geometry.
His works saw the demonstration of fractals in mathematics and elsewhere in nature - from clouds to snowflakes to coastlines to brain tissue.
He proved that they display "self-similarity" or patterns that recur at smaller and smaller scales.
The Mandelbrot Set, named for the famed scientist, is a complex series of numbers defined by Adrien Douady, a mathematician. Images of the set produce a fractal - an endlessly complex shape.
When zooming into the image, recursive detail emerges as the magnification is increased to tinier and tinier regions.
The shape of the detail that repeats changes depending on what region of the original image is studied. This edge is made up of smaller iterations of the original shape - maintaining the self-similar property of a fractal.
This framed premium gallery wrap canvas depicts an image zoomed to a magnification level of 1,048,800, yielding a partial view of the Mandelbrot set.
It not only makes for a fascinating image, but it is also extremely aesthetically pleasing. Reminiscent of a solar eclipse, the fractal pattern soothes the eye and engages the mind.
As you view it you find yourself uncovering more and more detail, encouraging you to look closer and explore further.
The Legacy of Fractal Art
In using fractals as art pieces, humans harness the power of science for aesthetic applications.
We create stunning visuals that are as beautiful as they are fascinating, encouraging viewers to explore and interact with the work in complex ways.
Fractals have been used artistically and aesthetically for centuries. Traditional African and Indonesian textiles and architecture showcase the versatility of fractals throughout history.
In modern times, the advent of 3D and 2D animation has seen fractals represented in fascinating and dynamic ways. Fractals are used in surface pattern design, architecture, and fine art.
This framed premium gallery wrap canvas is a fine example of fractal as fine art, encouraging people to interact with the concept in a targeted and holistic manner.
More than just an art print, this image speaks to your love of science and your enthusiasm for art that speaks to people on multiple levels.
So, whether you are a mathematics aficionado or an aesthetic connoisseur, this framed art piece is sure to capture attention and spur conversation.
Hang it over your mantle and let this print do the talking.
