The website is a gallery of computer-generated fractal art
as well as a text to explain what it is and how it is created. Gallery I
shows images given by the basic programming routines described in Stories about Fractal Plotting
, while Gallery II
comprises images given by a variety of techniques based on advanced ideas in college mathematics. The latter includes such three-dimensional objects as fractal mountains
and fractal forests
and fractals painted on various surfaces. Here are several examples:
Symmetric Rocks in Desert
Antique Vase with Fractal Pattern
||Escher-like Fern Mountains
| Newton's Apple
||Broken Taiko Drum
