Strange shapes and eerie perspectives come to life in this digitally rendered, 3-dimensional land/seascape based on a mathematical formula... The concept of fractal formulas has been around for some time, but really came into the spotlight around 1975 when a mathematician named Benoît Mandelbrot began to popularize it, and coined the term "Fractal". As the computer age dawned, computer users started to visualize these formulas with machine-generated stills and image sequences (video) that became more and more spectacular as computing and graphics rendering power increased. In recent times, fractal formulas have been brought into the 3rd dimension and freeware programs have popped-up which combine mathematical processing, light ray tracing, and image rendering into a single, menu-driven package. Softtware such as "Mandelbulb 3D" (http://www.fractalforums.com/index.ph...) can be freely downloaded and used to create amazing animated adventures through 3D machine space.


This digital journey took about 113 hours to render as a sequence of 4900 individual still frames. Those images were then built into a video sequence (in three parts) and finally made into the the final product you see here.

The soundtrack is "Neptune Orbit (Alien City Mix)" from the "Mission Control" CD by Technician (yours truly), MP3 album and single track available on iTunes at: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/miss... full artist discography and CDs available at HTTP://technician.jcmdi.com
