Fractal in Love

by
Maria Kelly
Nature loves a strange attractor a chaotic set of repeating notations that explode in ecstasy outward from her center in lines and spirals and circles A paisley mathematics so beautiful in design that it is almost blinding As the vibrant colors engage they tickle the mind and delight the eye and leave me with burning questions: Do Mandelbrots and Julia Sets fall in love? Is this what it looks like when colors and patterns hold hands? Kiss deeply? Make mad, passionate love?

Fractals (and to a lesser degree, chaos theory) are passions of mine. My twitter page is a fractal sphere, a super cool 3-D fractal image that I tweaked to make a seamless tile background. It looks like a planet sporting a huge crop circle. I pretend it's a spaceport.

Thanks for commenting, ladies. Glad you liked it. :)
