Fractal art

Fractal art is an algorithmic approach for producing Computer-generated art using fractal mathematics. Traditionally, fractals fall into three broad categories relevant to fractal art:

Fractals of all three kinds have been used as the basis for vast sections of digital art and animation. Starting with 2-dimensional details of fractals such as the Mandelbrot Set, fractals have found artistic application in fields as varied as texture generation, plant growth simulation and landscape generation.

Many fractal art galleries can now be found on the Internet. Perhaps a good starting point would be the fractal pages of Stephen C. Ferguson[?] who has made several fractal generators--for example http://www.eclectasy.com/Iterations-et-Flarium24. For an example of the state of the art in fractal landscapes, http://www.fractal-landscapes.com contains an excellent gallery and a description of the mathematics behind fractal landscapes. For an example of a fractal viewer see http://www.efractal.com.
