(1989) This video documents a very early version of the visualization research which led to the project Quaternion Julia Sets in Virtual Reality that premiered at Supercomputing '95.
In 1989 John Hart, a master of science graduate student in the computer science department at UIC, hit upon the idea of using a distance estimation technique witch made computation more efficient and provided a basis for determining surface orientation of three and higher dimensional fractal objects.
In the video, MS Student John Hart and Lou Kauffman are interviewed and they explain Quaternion Julia Sets and the complexities of the project. They also demonstrate the very esoteric handshake of The Fraternity of the Quaternion.
