The Wondering Angels of the Fractal Art

  • Viorel Guliciuc
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 64)

Summary. Fractal Art is still a disputable topic among those touched by the “computer phobia”. But in the postmodern era, the power of the fragment to announce the whole could never be underestimated. In fact, it is a form of Digital Art, having its own techniques and its own aesthetics. Moreover, we could detect in Fractal Art some connections with the Artificial Intelligence, if we agree that the Intelligence itself is already presupposed in any Theory of/on Complexity and so in any set/system of algorithms describing shapes with the self-similarity property.
