Fractal Art by Doug Harrington at Fractalarts.com Fractal Definition: A geometric pattern that is repeated (iterated) at ever smaller (or larger) scales to produce (self similar) irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical (Euclidian) geometry. Fractals are used especially in computer modeling of irregular patterns and structures found in nature.
A fractal is a geometric shape that has symmetry of scale. This means that it is a shape that you could zoom in on a part of it an infinite number of times and it would still look the same. This is also called self-similarity. Computer-generated fractals are produced mathematically, and these can create detailed pictures of mountains, plants, waves, and planets. Some mathematicians, such as Benoit Mandelbrot, study nature first, looking for fractal behavior.
Description from bluarch: This project is conceptually linked to the notions of self-similarity and non-differentiability descending from the fractal definition of a geometry versus its topological essence. The ceiling installation is a three-dimensional, cloud-like, organic formation of 1/2”-square by 6-inch poplar members.... ....Integrated and seamless is the lighting system of LED sources arranged to enhance the hovering nature of the poplar-cloud ceiling
