Fractal Art

Thanks to Olive Dorben I've become aware of this ever changing art exhibition:

3D Mandelbrot Fractal Art by Mac Kanashimi, 2013
- A minimalist exhibition at LEA: Linden Endowment for the Arts


Title: 3D Mandelbrot Fractal Art
Size: 256W, 256D, 64H/96H (meter)

[About the artwork]
The 3D Mandelbrot Fractal Art exhibit showcases sim-wide variations of mandelbrot fractal art.
The spectacular script-controlled fractal landscape changes many times throughout the day.
3D Mandelbrot Fractal Art is Mac Kanashimi's largest work until now.

The exhibit shows three types of fractal:
- Mesh boxes, calculated pixel by pixel {1}.
  The three variations are: tall boxes, floating top, dropped top.
- Two mesh box layers with cylinders or spheres on top, calculated using the
  Distance Bound Method {1}. The six variations are:
  cylinders, cylinder stalactites, cylinder stalagmites,
  spheres, floating spheres, semispheres.
- 8 spheres, 8 tori, 8 tubes or 8 rings, calculated pixel by pixel {1}.
  Fixed resolution 96 x 192 pixels. The three variations are:
  hollow, inside out, complement.

A specially written C program does:
- calculate the number of iterations,
- group pixels of equal iteration into one prim where possible,
- prevent visible overlapping tall boxes and visible empty spaces below tall boxes,
- divide prims into objects of 1, 3, 7, 15, 31, 63, 127 or 255 prims,
- ensure that the object is compliant with the linkability rule {4}.
Each fractal type is stored on notecards.
The colors are generated using HSL and converted to RGB {3}.

Office with a view

Hørsholm Kirke by C.F. Hansen was finished in 1823 and succeeded the prior Hirschholm Palace.
'After that summer, and after the arrest of Struensee and the Queen on 17 January 1772, and the subsequent execution of Struensee, and the banishment and imprisonment of the Queen, the palace stood empty until 1810. At that time Frederik VI had the now dilapidated palace torn down for use as build materials for the rebuilding of Christiansborg Palace, which had burned to the ground in the fire of 1794.'
