Science and Art meet
Fractals were first described about a hundred years ago, but until recently they remained only theoretical. With fast processors we can now render deeply complicated and beautiful fractals - science and art meet.
Fractals are imperfect self-replications ('self-similarity') using one calculation's output as input for the next. The formulae appear in nature and help to explain the patterns and repetitions we see in, say, fern leaves, clouds, coastlines and snowflakes. There is a deep harmony in fractal shapes, from the subtle repetitions, that makes fractal images greatly appealing.
Fractal art images are rich in complexity and detail. They are created by repeatedly applying fractal formulae and plotting the results pixel-by-pixel. The colours are calculated from gradient parameters defined for a selected formula.
effervescence digital art galleries contain high-resolution computer images available as archival quality prints. Generated by the application of fractal formulae, then collaged and manipulated, these stunning images have fine detail and rich, saturated colours.
The images are produced as archival quality photographic prints in sizes 6"x4", 12"x8", 15"x10", 18"x12", 30"x20".
