  fractalus - The Fractal Art Manifesto (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab-2.cs.princeton.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Fractal Art is a genre concerned with fractals—shapes or sets characterized by self affinity (small portions of the image resemble the overall shape) and an infinite amount of detail, at all scales.
Fractal Art is a subclass of two dimensional visual art, and is in many respects similar to photography—another art form which was greeted by skepticism upon its arrival.
Fractal Artists are no less capable of using their medium as a similarly expressive language, as they are equipped with all the essential tools of the traditional visual artist.

Fractal art is usually created with the assistance of a computer, in order to speed up the process of calculating the fractal function.

Fractal geometry was devised to help describe the structure of real world objects such as clouds, mountains and complex biological systems.
Benoit Mandelbrot, considered by many to be the father of fractal geometry, observed that Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line.
Fractal artists take advantage of this fact by altering only a small number of parameters such as colour gradient and zoom factor to produce an endless number of organic and crystalline designs.

 Fractal Art FAQ: About fractals and discussion lists
   The term fractal art applies mainly to a form of digital abstract art that seeks to reflect and emphasize the eternal expressions of order and chaos that permeates Nature’s structures and behaviors as well as the intricacies of humanity through the use of self-similar patterns and shapes.
   Emerging from the studies of fractal geometry in the last third of the twentieth century and the popularity of the microcomputer in the 1980’s, it rapidly evolved throughout that decade, and especially in the 1990’s, thanks to the development of faster processors and the advent of the Internet as a medium of mass communication.
In spite of the fact that this FAQ is mainly devoted to visual fractal art, some information is given (questions 3l, 4Cj, 6f) for those who are interested to explore this domain.

 Fractal Art FAQ: Basic fractal information
Fractals derived from standard geometry by using iterative transformations on an initial common figure like a straight line (the Cantor dust or the von Koch curve), a triangle (the Sierpinsky triangle), or a cube (the Menger sponge).
This kind of fractals is not easy to explain to non-mathematician readers, but fundamentally, the structure of these fractals is described by a set of affine (linear) functions which compute the transformations undergone by each point by homothety, translation, rotation.
Fractal math is used, but a great many other algorithmic techniques are used, giving the software it’s own unique “flavor”.
