E is for…

Welcome to Day 5 of the April 2013 AtoZ Challenge… enjoy…

I may have forgotten to mention my theme – it will be fractals, fractal art, everything fractal up to and including my new book Fractal Dreams! Have a look around my pages and such to see lots more fractals. Also, every Friday I post a FridayFractalFeature (fff, for short) for all to enjoy! Thanks for stopping by and engaging in the A to Z 2013 Challenge! This is my FIRST ever, so I’m pretty excited! So every day I will post a fractal whose title starts with the letter of the day… and perhaps other things fractal related.

E is for….
Element 90 – An amazing fractalist who has created his own software for generating and rendering fractals called Venus, Mars, Saturn (fractal explorers) and Phobos, Terra, Luna and Titan, which are fractal expanders! They are FREE!

the fractal for E is: Electric Haiku

Electric Haiku is not in my book, Fractal Dreams, which is available exclusively at RedmundPro.

B is for… BEHIND BARS

Tuesday (today 4/2/13) is Day 2 of the April 2013 AtoZ Challenge…

In my excitementI may have forgotten to mention my theme – it will be fractals, fractal art, everything fractal up to and including my new book Fractal Dreams! Have a look around my pages and such to see lots more fractals. Also, every Friday I post a FridayFractalFeature (fff, for short) for all to enjoy! Thanks for stopping by and engaging in the A to Z 2013 Challenge! This is my FIRST ever, so I’m pretty excited! So every day I will post a fractal whose title starts with the letter of the day… and perhaps other things fractal related.

B is for….
Buddhakat – why, that’s me, of course. Or, more specifically our family name, the Buddhakats. Our family currently consists of myself – the fractal artist, of the genus felinus humanus (Janet, head cat), Mama – all gray long hair (meow – mother to Mimi) and Mimi, all black short hair (meow – daughter to Mama). They used to be Michelle (Mama) and Miriam (Mimi), but when they moved in they wanted to change their names. So we did. They seem to like their new names just fine!
Book – as in my new book FRACTAL DREAMS currently available at RedmundPro
Benoit – as in Benoit B Mandelbrot, the mathematician for developing a “theory of roughness” in nature. He also coined the word “fractal” and wrote the defining book on the science of fractals, Fractals: Form, Chance and Dimension in 1975. It was translated to English shortly after that.

the fractal for B is: Behind Bars

Fractal Friday it is…

g’day, all… hoping it is for all, anyway…

today’s fractal offerings are again of my own creation… these were all made from the same fractal software: Fractal Explorer… the best thing about Fractal Explorer is that it is FREEWARE and OPEN SOURCE…  next best could be any of many reasons… there are lots and lots of fractals already in FE and way lots of ways that one can manipulate/change/create very original and pretty cool myriads more fractals… then, there is also a a place where you can download public domain fractal files (known as parameters, or in FE, Spot files), palettes and so much more… careful, though… it is highly addictive…

so, without further ado… tadaaaaa…    SACRED ROYAL TOTEM

    TANGLED UP IN BLUE

FEED ME… FEED ME, SEYMOUR

What are fractals?

Fractal is a term which was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot. It refers to a certain group of shapes and objects. But how to define fractals?

Fractals are natural or artificial structures wich offer a high level of scale invariance or self-similarity.

Scale invariance relating to fractals means that the scale is not important for the result. Structures which are scale invariant can be observed from different distances but the object always looks the same.

Self similarity means that parts of the object are self similar (they contain parts of themself). Self similar structures contain parts which are similar to themselves. It is even possible that the whole sturcutre can be found within the object (i.e. Mandelbrot Set).

Because of these two attributes very complex structures can be reduced to simple rules when they are recognized as fractals.

Examples for natural fractales are:

Examples for artificial fractals are:

After understanding the beauty of fractals you will always try to find fractal structures in your environment. And you will find them. Fractals are more than just a mathematical theory to describe certain things. Fractals are the answer to so many different questions.

By the way:

In 1997 Arthur Clarke made a recommendable documentary about fractals called “Fractals: The Colors of Infinity”:

this is part 1 of 6 of the Arthur C. Clarke documentary which can be seen in full (about an hour) here… I’ll post each of the six you tube parts of this over the next 5 (more) Fridays, in case you want your documentaries in small doses…

thanks for stopping by and welcome to my world!!!
