The Fractal Science Kit fractal generator is a Windows program to generate a mathematical object called a fractal. The term fractal was coined by Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975 in his book Fractals: Form, Chance, and Dimension. In 1979, while studying the Julia set, Mandelbrot discovered what is now called the Mandelbrot set and inspired a generation of mathematicians and computer programmers in the study of fractals and fractal geometry.
Fractal art is a type of digital art that's considered new media. It's not drawn or painted by hand, rather, fractal-generating software is used that relies on mathematical calculations to visually display objects. Carrara, Italy-born Silvia Cordedda was only made aware of fractal art since January 2012, yet she's already amassed a body of work that's nothing short of extraordinary.
