Nesting Doll Faceoff on Mirror Lake
with the following description:
This work utilizes a three-dimensional fractal software program called Mandelbulb3D, which has expanded the classic two-dimensional Mandelbrot set into infinite new possibilities of art and mathematical discovery. Important concepts such as symmetry, infinite series, and Snell’s Law are illustrated along with cultural reference to Matryoshki, the Russian nesting dolls traditionally carved from wood and painted by hand. I continue to explore avenues for this artform to enhance interest among adults and scholastic youth in Computing, Science, Mathematics and lifetime general learning. 3D art may soon merge with the recent availability of personal 3D printing, leading to “fractal sculptures”.
