Episode 142: Fractal Images Are Freaking Us Out, Yo!

Join us for a short but sweet episode on Fractal Images. What they hell are these beautiful mysteries of art wrapped in math? Where can we see them in nature? How can we make them digitally? How can we use them in our art? How are artist using them in their work? All answers will be revealed in this episode… and of course The Gals get a bit weird and possibly gross because that is what they do best.

Check out the beautiful Pintrest board for this episode here.

If you want to experiment with generating fractals on your computer The Fractal Software Foundation is a fantastic place to find FREE software to do so!

All of the software we talked about on the show can be found here. There are many other learning resources about fractals on this site… we just can’t recommend it enough.

Smashing Magazine (which we love for inspiration and research) has a fun article about fractals with some stunning examples of computer generated fractal images. You can read that here.

Because we specifically mentioned the artist Nuala O’Donovan’s fractal sculpture work in the episode, we want to make sure we share her website. http://www.nualaodonovan.com/nuala-o’donovan Her work is truly stunning.
