This video documents a very early version (1989) of the visualization research that 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 presents a visualization of the quaternion extension of a single Julia Set. The Julia set is rotated in the complex plane, and action which causes dynamic alterations to its quaternion extension. In 2002, and informational CD-ROM was created that showcases the history of this visualization research. The website can be found at -- http://www.evl.uic.edu/hypercomplex/
