New evidence has revealed a credible methodology for creating Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR). This post is about Fractal Art and how LENR reactions can produce Fractals as by-products.
The discovery of several elements whose presence was clearly unexpected occurred. Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) was used to identify the chemical characteristics in combination with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Platinum, Palladium, Gold, Hafnium, Rhenium, etc. were discovered in the substance which resulted in fantastic Fractal Art images.
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) was used to identify the atomic properties. As another by-product, great fractal images were created as well which provides numerous possibilities for future projects.
In a fundamental way, fractals art images are merely shapes, just like circles, triangles, and squares are shapes. Yet, fractals are so different from the more common shapes that we know. You can tell immediately that fractals are very different. Circles, for example, are smooth, and we can see that even more precisely if we look at all the time smaller image of pieces of a circle:
When the magnification of the piece of the circle increases, the circle’s edges will flatten out to eventually get indistinguishable from straight lines. For a smooth shape, this is characteristic: if only you’ll zoom in enough, the edges will look just like straight lines.
Fractals are different: no matter how often or how much you’ll zoom in, their shape will never flatten out. With fractals, regardless of how much you are zooming in, you’ll never be without detail. In every fractal, there is an infinite amount of detail, literally.
Do you ever find a new technique or application in art that just astounds you? Fractal Art and amazing Vortographs are my latest obsession.
I first learned about Fractal Art and Vortographs in college during my History of Photography class. At the time, I was far more concerned with making sure I could fit all those slides and facts in my brain than the inspirational things I could learn from these photographers. But looking back, that class exposed me to photographers and processes I probably wouldn’t have heard of otherwise. I know fractals are different but still, I want you to see these great images nonetheless.
Vortography is a completely abstract form of photography invented by Alvin Langdon Coburn all the way back in 1917. You know, back when you couldn’t just *create* these effects in photoshop – you had to be creative enough to visualize them beforehand. What Coburn did was absolutely new and unique, although not so appreciated at the time.
Fractal Art began to be created in the times characterized by the impact of a variety of concepts and the combination of all kinds of methods. The storm force caused by “fuzzy” Fractal Art swiftly scudded through the domains of mathematics, biology, atmosphere, and oceanics. Besides these natural sciences, it also influenced violently several social studies, even in music and art. So let’s look a little deeper into the world of Fractal Art Images – a New World.
Mysterious and infinite art fascination in imagination, unbelievable and indescribable scenery in the fractal new world have been leading and stimulating human being to explore and expand.
During the research and creation, people appreciate surprisingly the wonderful works based on science and fine arts and the harmonious integration of mathematics and aesthetics. People enjoy feeling physically the genuine and alive mathematics that usually be considered as only uninteresting numbers and complicated formulas in the past. Fractal Art is a special bridge between science and fine arts.
Here is some more fractal art – more unbelievable fractals! Just look at the Iris as in the flower, not the part of the eye. I’m not certain this piece actually looks anything like an iris, but it has a similar color scheme to some of the ones that grow in my backyard. Of course, those irises are some weird cultivar with lots and lots of ruffles, so my idea of what an iris looks like and your idea of what an iris looks like might not mesh.
I like to think of this flame as being a photograph (or other image capturing technology of your choice) of some little wisp of living energy flitting through space. Why would there be such a thing? Well, nature abhors a vacuum. Almost as much as people, probably. I don’t think anybody is truly comfortable with the idea of a vast expanse that contains absolutely nothing at all. Imagining that that vacuum is filled with pretty little fluttery things tickles my fancy.
When I make a flame like this, I start thinking I don’t know nearly enough about the possible tricks and techniques of this art form to say I have anything resembling a ‘style’ yet. So here you see how to make fractal art by hand. There are so many wildly divergent possibilities, and I’ve only scratched the surface. Maybe that’s a good thing; if this stopped being a learning process, it wouldn’t be as much fun.
When I re-rendered this piece in the 16:10 ratio, something surprising popped up: A line spiraling outwards from the center of the pearl. It’s repeated elsewhere in the piece, although the distortions make it difficult to pick out. I have no idea where it came from, or why it doesn’t show up in the only-slightly-smaller 5:4 render. It doesn’t mar the piece any, but I’d very much like to know why it’s there.
This piece is hot off the processor, to use a horribly trite metaphor. I did it this afternoon, and I’m pretty happy with it. My brother pointed out to me that it’s got a similar spiral pattern to what you’d see in the seeds on a sunflower–fractal shapes are everywhere, folks.
If there were such a terribly unscientific thing as an ‘ether’ in the first place (And you never know, physicists come up with any number of crazy ideas that they claim to be able to fit to mathematical models.
They probably can, but nobody but the other physicists would be able to tell if they were full of nonsense.), I think it would have various ethereal beasties living in it. Beasties that leave footprints. Some of these footprints would be very large. Some would be very small.
The beasties that leave large footprints would eat the beasties that leave small footprints. It’s only natural, after all. I submit for your consideration the image above, wherein we see footprints marking the passage of a Very Large Beastie chasing after various smaller beasties. The remarkable resemblance in color to rainbow sherbet is purely an artifact of our Etherscope, which must use false color to present interpretable images.
Simply stated, fractal pieces of art are graphical representations of mathematical equations. Fractal art has basically infinitely diverse forms, lighting, color, and detail level. Due to its mathematical basis, a fractal may contain infinite detail: theoretically, you can zoom in and out a fractal without any limit. Fractals are self-similar without being identical, and certain regions of fractals look similar to some other regions. So this page tells you more about Fractal Art – How to start.
In the 1980s, new computer technological developments unleashed a phenomenal new direction of art that was based on mathematical algorithms. We named this new art form Fractal Art. Very often, the images of Fractal Art are splitting, kaleidoscopic, and spiraling in beautiful symmetrical patterns.
Fractals are computer generated images, or designs, complex patterns and forms that are of amazing detail, color, and light. Fractal Art is created by using mathematical formulas and are infinite as to ever-increasing detail. The closer you will zoom or look into a fractal, the more details you will discover. Different types of fractals may be created by different mathematical formulas.
Today, you can find hundreds of digital artists all across the world who are making art that is incorporating fractal elements, and all these artists come with their own styles. Just take a look how many fractal art examples are on Pinterest or check out this video:
While algorithmic art is objectively showing the mathematical or geometric structure in a highly pleasing aesthetic way, there are also fractal artists who are daring to take it all to the next level and use fractal elements in their artworks that are appealing in a subjective way to spectators’ emotions and feelings.
In this article, I review the styles of Kerry Mitchell, Mark Townsend, and Janet Parke, and you’ll notice that all three fractal artists come with their own recognizable and well-developed styles. Continue reading “Famous Fractal Artists”→
We live in a country in which many are deeply religious, yet so few actually know about religion. This post addresses Fractals of the mist, Tangible Witchcraft, Meditation, and Prayer. According to a recent survey, not only do Americans know very little about people of other faiths and what they believe, but they also know precious little about their own religions!
That’s why I am glad for this new project, called Faithbook:
PBS (the Public Broadcast System, a TV station that is supported by donations (rather than advertising), for those readers outside the US) is hosting a new feature on their website, called Faithbook. Subtitled “God in America” it certainly is full of assumptions, but I will assume good intent.
The project is documenting how Americans actually feel about religion and spirituality in their own words, and you can browse what others believe, too. They ask a series of guided questions and people create their own profiles to answer them, so we get to see the diverse mosaic that is US culture. I have started my Faithbook page, and am answering the questions slowly.
I encourage all of you out there reading this to create a Faithbook page and answer the questions. If not for anyone else, certainly for yourself!
