Very intersting artwork.
Is it art or science or both?
We learned about chaos theory in elementary school. We learned that the way clouds swirl, and the way that cigarette ...
It's wonderful to see you!
Perhaps not we, but you in your elementary school learned about Chaos theory which, as far as I know, is never taught by any teacher in China in elementary school, in which both teachers and pupils are not capable of studying Chaos theory, which domain includes lots of mathematical analysis, such as set theory, Calculus, advanced algebra, Topology, introduction of number theory, theory of probability, etc. If you learned Chaos theory from elementary school, you would be a genius; or you learned about the mere beginning of Fractal.
Benoît Mandelbrot, the forefather of Fractal, what I admire him is not him, but his uncles, they guided him to study mathematics. I wish I had such people to guide me!
Yes, those images are belonged to the domain of art since they use various and vivid colors to render the original images, nevertheless the backbone of images are totally based on iterated functions from math.
Here is a website that has a graph to illustrate the relationship among art and Fractal and Chaos and more.
