I have talked about fractals multiple times before. Also, you probably know how much I enjoy discovering new artist in this domain. This post will be all about Paul Griffitts' work. Fractals have been a source of inspiration for many artists since they were first described by Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975. The well-known property of self-similarity... Continue Reading →

For today I decided to write more about some interesting spirals that can be found in nature. 1. Logarithmic Spiral - generally speaking, this is a self-similar spiral curve. This property is used often... Continue Reading →

Hope you had a good week so far. If you have read my previous post, you were probably expecting this post. While visiting Edinburgh Butterfly & Insect World I have spent some time watching the ants they have there. Looking at their organized trails and how they were carrying things around, I was sure there was some... Continue Reading →

Anything from symmetry, spirals, fractals or any other patterns have been part of my "research" project this summer. I don't have an explanation, it wasn't something planned, it just happened. So, I... Continue Reading →

Unfortunately, these drawings are eventually erased by waves and weather (winds, rain, etc). I am talking about Jim Denevan. His drawings range in scale from smaller beach compositions to large scale land works the size of a city.... Continue Reading →
