Welcome to wonderland... a place where beauty is created from dull
material, complexity out of simple functions... a hidden oasis in the barren
landscape of mathematics. You have entered the world of fractals... a
continent kept secret for what seemed an eternity, only recently discovered by
Benoit B. Mandelbrot. Mandelbrot didn't invent the wheel or
printing... he didn't sail a ship to India, getting lost... but he did discover
a beauty within formulas, revealing what no one had ever witnessed before...
The fractal images you are about to see in these pages are my own
creations. If you have seen them in different places on the net, you know now
where they came from! Feel free to copy and distribute these images, on a
non-commercial basis. For any other use I would appreciate to be consulted
first. The software I used to create these is called FractInt, a program
for the MS-DOS crippled personal computer. With kind regards to the Stone Soup
Currently "Coil", retrieved from an old dusty directory - "Firepox", a glowing
sea creature - "Barren", a breathtaking fractal landscape - and "Vortex", an
anomaly in imaginary dimensions.
Bluedive I & II (image/animation) - Ufo (image) - Bowl (image) - Lace (image) -
have something in common... guess what! Bluedive is a favourite here. If you
have the link and the equipment to download large files, Bluedive's animation
is definitely worth the trouble!
THREE - Zoom (image/animation) - Galaxy
(image/animation) - Flower (image) -
Zoom is a classic. The basic Mandelbrot set in all its beauty. Zoom's animation
has appeared on quite some sites on the net... strongly recommended! Galaxy is
of more recent date, and shows a different type of fractal, with a very
FOUR - Twist1 (image) - Twist2 (image) - Jean
(image) - The twist fractals are among my personal favourites. Very complex
structured fractals, lots of detail, forming outrageous shapes. No animations
here - these piccies take quite some time to calculate.
FIVE - Rose (image) - Dome (image) - Joy
(image) - Some amazingly simple fractals with a very typical style. You could
consider these the "modern art" among the classical fractals. Dome is not
really a fractal, but the result of a bug!
