Each fractal image, whether static or moving, is uniquely generated to draw the viewer into the complexity of its repetitive, beauty nature.
A Fractal is a type of mathematical shape that are infinitely complex. They are created by repeating a simple mathematical process over and over in an ongoing loop. Driven by recursion, fractals are images of dynamic systems which are known to exist in familiar surroundings. Nature is full of fractals, as in trees, plants, weather, landscapes, sea life and so on. Abstract fractals – such as the Mandelbrot Set used here – have been mathematically generated by manipulating a simple equation on a computer. Below is a graphic representation of the Mandelbrot Equation:
In essence, a Fractal is a pattern that repeats forever, and every part of the Fractal, regardless of how zoomed in, or zoomed out you are, it looks very similar to the whole image.
As mentioned before, fractals surround us in nature and in life. From simple examples of the nautilus and desert sand patterns, to the more complex examples like our circulatory system and even lightning and electricity, it’s interesting how fractals actually impact our lives.

Fluids and music in motion
The fluids with music in motion are simply another source of serenity and joy – eye candy if you will. Created again with math at their core, the dancing fluid art clips you encounter in this gallery are a combination of color and movement to music. These moving art clips were an absolute joy to create – especially since there are no boundaries to the imagination once I started.
These can be used for relaxation, meditation, or simply to enjoy the combination of dancing colors and music. They’re not bad as screensavers as well!
I sincerely hope you enjoy visiting Fractals and Fluids.
