True artistry...your comments add to the animation of the images. Great program. Your manipulations inspire the imagination. And the best part, it just keeps getting better. Thanks for sharing your creativity. I enjoy your sense of humor.
This is the second set of fractals I have seen posted by Roger Johnston. I have saved both to my computer to use as wallpaper as to a tribute to his fine work. I've tried to make some of my own, but have never gotten the hang of it. Roger, the only alteration I have even done to you fractals is to returns them to their titles when I save them. I hope you don't mind. Numbers just don't do them justice. They are true works of art from the only divine language of the universe......mathematics. Kudos
I'm really excited and amazed by this kind of art. May be this is the art of future: combining irration vivid imagination and art vision with strong mathematical base it produces an amazing abstract pictures. So may be fractals with expand their in fluence on other kinds of human art activity? I'm sure it will one of the art movements in near future.
I'm dazzled that mathematics can actually do this...I should have study math a little harder in school!
There is considerable debate as to whether fractal images qualify as art. I hold that if we respond to them as we do classical art, then it is not far from being art. Thanks again.
Roger, your images are simply stunning. I have tried to get the hang of flame fractals using apophysis, but I am not succeeding. What software do you use to create images like these?
