What are these seemingly chaotic, random patterns? blood vessels? satellite images of rivers? branches of trees? mathematically generated fractal images?
Probably all… extremely chaotic, yet extremely ordered.
Those pictures remind me very much of “zn+1 = zn2 + c” … the mandelbrot formula. Self-similarity in various scales. This is a ver nice shot. The positive version reminds me of the fractals directly, the negative version reminds me of blood vessels. And again: the similarity between tree branches and blood vessel branches is stunning…
I only wish, the upper right corner wouldn’t be empty. It provides a “exit hole” for my eyes…
Yes, they are really fractals and in some sense look similar to mandelbrot sets. About the upper right (and probably the lower right) I agree with you, but smaller crops miss some interesting fractal parts from other parts of the image.
Loved these images . I like to think of them as ever-growing fractals 🙂
Nice going through your very creative images.
