I als have some more backgrounds on
how I became interested in fractals and the
generation of them. GIF Pictures were calculated using
and converted to JPEG using
Workshop (originally) or Image
Magick (currently). Resolution is 1024x768 (50-220kB each) and for
several of the most interesting, also big 2048x2048 versions are
available (0.3-1Mb each). A total of 6.4MB pictures is available.
(P.S. The background you see is a thumbnail
of the Full Mandelbrot set.)
Up to now, there has been some interest in my Mandelbrot Art. Some
of the images have appeared in print (or used otherwise) in:
journal of The
Archimedeans, the Cambridge University Mathematical Society, in
an October 2011 article on complexity in financial markets.

Evolution Theatre, Ottawa.

- Stary Antennae at the top of the Mandelbrot Set
- 'Mandelbrot mountains' can be made by using iteration counts
elevation. All mountains here are made from the whole Mandelbrot set. In the second and
third pictures (the gradient-shaded ones) a special feature of the
Fractint program was used to create a smooth gradient inbetween
iteration counts. This is called the 'continuous potential' function
and interpolates iteration values based on the magnitude of the first
complex number that escapes to infinity. These values are stored in 16
bit accuracy (actually 8 bits integer with 8 bits 'interpolated
accuracy') and used as elevation levels.
- FractInt can also wrap a picture on a sphere, using colour
as a depth or highth from the surface of the sphere. Adding the right
colour-scheme, this results in moon-like objects:
I am planning to add some more info to the pictures, like the
area, zoom factor maybe a description of the colours-schemes
I used and maybe point out some exceptionally interesting
features in some pictures..
