Fractal Explorer Java Application

 

In 2013 I wrote a dynamic Java application to generate Fractal images. These are beautiful forms generated from simple mathematics. In 2016 I updated my application and posted it to a Fractals page on my Bronze Art website. Take a look if you are interested. This is where I describe how beautiful fractal images can […]

Fractal Image Explorer

 

Although not specifically related to my Bronze Art, one of the curiosities that I have developed is my artistic Fractal Image Explorer program. This is used to create wonderful images of mathematical fractal functions. Fractals are functions such that whenever you look deeper into a section of the curve you see repetitions and self-similarities to […]

Mandelbrot Cube – Etching

 

This post describes etching the Julia Set images for my Mandelbrot Cube. Each cube face is about two inches square and made from 20 gauge sheet brass.  Etching requires that a mask or resist be put on the metal to stop the etching acids or salts from reacting with the areas that are to be […]

Mandelbrot Cube – Introduction

 

The Mandelbrot Cube project is a fascinating exploration of fractal mathematics.  Fractals are functions such that whenever you look deeper into a section of the curve you see repetitions and self-similarities to what you first started with. Fractals are recursive and iterative and chaotic.  And, they are truly beautiful. For the bronze figure in this […]
