what is this and tell your friends math CAN be cool...

I'm continuing my dabbling and messing around in Procreate(tm), which I first mentioned here, and I've added even more nifty cool fun to my repertoire via a fractal generating app. Now, fractals have always fascinated me, even though I've never been able to wrap my head around the mathematical equations used to produce them.

Yes. OMG math. what is this I don't even...

Math is supposed to be boring and numbers and why do we have to memorize this stupid quadratic equation and NO! you tell ME how to find X, because I have better things to do...

So I've started combining some cool fractally wonders and some other cool and nifty artsy ideas, and have come up with something like this:

Of course, now I'm stuck not knowing what to call this ...strange...fractal...thing...

So...I'd love to hear some ideas on a title. What words come to mind when you look at the piece? What catches your eye first? I'd love to hear from you!

  2. Hi Jennifer, Math or no, I'm certainly not a math person myself (love the calculator actually) these images are beautiful.


  3. I am not a math person, but I also have a deep respect for it! I love the more intricate patterns that math can reveal, such as fractals or the golden spiral.
    Your piece is really cool - it makes me think of looking up into the night sky and seeing space - but more intricately than we usually do - not just seeing the stars but seeing the planets and some nebula as well :)
