About the pics..

If you see pictures that belong to you - don't get pissy and complain to google. Just tell me, and I'll either remove them immediately or give you credit and a link - whichever you prefer.

Fractal Art

This is not a photoshopped cheetah photo, it's a fractal image. What's a fractal? A fractal is a kind of a hologram, it's "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be subdivided into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole," a property called self-similarity. The term was coined by BenoƮt Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning "broken" or "fractured."

Creation of a fractal is a random process. Most of the time the artist achieves something other than what he or she planned. More of these surprising images can be viewed at Art of Pain.

Well that is a different kind of art.

It's not your traditional fractal art, that's for sure - nor is it the expected wildlife art... Cool, huh?

I found these pictures sitting in the My Documents folder in my computer. I have no idea how they got there or where they came from. It must have been a too much tequila not enough rational thinking kind of night. If one or more of them belongs to you and you don't want them here - I'll be happy to remove them.
