Path to Fractal World Enlightenment B&W
Path to Fractal World Enlightenment B&WIt seemed appropriate for me to post online the black&white version of the Mindfulness Meditation artwork. The main reason, for which it seems to me it could be interesting, is that the black and white style removes all unnecessary things that are associated with color, a meditating person and a sense of space. It leaves only the basis, the ideological concept, so to speak the skeleton of the work. This option is a partially negative and partially positive version of the black and white gradation of the Meditation work. This was done in order to highlight, emphasize the most significant functions of the world's fractality about which in general, this picture is all about. - George Grie
The term fractal means consisting of fragments. It was suggested by the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975 to designate self-similar irregular structures. "Can the form, which is determined by a simple equation or a simple construction rule be perceived by people far from geometry as having aesthetic value - namely, at least, surprisingly decorative object or perhaps even as a work of art?" The main result of his scientific works, B. Mandelbrot considered returning to the verb "see" its original meaning. It is computer technology that made this vision possible at the level of everyday aesthetic practices. As a telescope and a microscope once opened new areas of visible reality in a scientific environment. Fractal optics of vision allows seeing a new order from the chaos of forms, creating both a new imagery and new rules for generating a new meaning.
Mandelbrot noted that "Fractal" as a new geometric art demonstrates a striking similarity with the paintings of old masters or creations of architecture. One of the obvious reasons is that both fractals and works of classical art include many length scales and elements of self-similarity. As an example, he quoted engravings by a Japanese artist K. Hokusai. His paintings are the best proof that fractal structures were known to mankind since ancient times, but they were defined only through fine art. For example, a triangle is a very basic geometric figure of two-dimensional space. If you add only one point you get a pyramid which is the basic tree-dimensional object. Add one more point on a time line and you are getting a moving pyramid in a four dimensional universe. Triangle is a very common form in nature, is a dynamic, unstable figure that is associated with movement and development, and when it is portrayed as a "top-up" it evokes images of permanency and stability. The isosceles triangle is also the simplest fractal object, and the digital color image on the screen is also obtained by mixing three basic colors.
Contemporary fractal research covers all spheres of culture from fine arts to architecture, from literature to cinema, from fashion design to advertising style, and from science to philosophy. Fractal art is not only a computer program based on mathematical rules. The aesthetics of fractal art is associated with a fundamentally new imagery, ways of its perception and its going beyond the boundaries of the real world. However, the creative key element is the artist who creates the picture with his heart, work, and intellect.*
