|Oh wonder - what is this? This, dear visitor, is fractal art.|
Fractal art is a form of art which utilizes a computer, preferably with a special software, to calculate images.
Contrary to common belief, this does not mean that the creation process is automated as well. Fractal art requires deep knowledge of the mechanics of certain formulas.
Now you could think that you need a certain level of mathematical knowledge and affinity but this is a misconception. That is where fractal software enters the game.
Fractal software enables the artist to approach fractal art on an intuitive, to some degree non-technical level. Just like you don't have to calculate the colors of the pixels of a digital painting, you don't have to calculate the formula of a fractal in a fractal artwork.
