Fractal Generator

Mandelbrot fractals produce stunning, infinitely detailed patterns, and this image is just one example of the vast possibilities. This project began as a programming assignment for a computer science class. I later extended my solution to generate more interesting, larger images. At each point in a specified region, the program returns a value based on the number of iterations needed to determine whether or not that point is in the Mandelbrot set. Each value in the region is then assigned a…


fractal artwork is created using mathematical formulas and fractal-generating software. Shapes and colors are repeated infinitely within an image, and when the hand of the artist comes into play variances are introduced breathing life and vibrancy into the work.

Incredibly Beautiful Fractal Flowers

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.
