Description: Some personal observations on fractal art and artists. "...the fractal artist does not create but explores, does not manufacture but discovers. Instead of being repelled by computers, such adventurers revel in them, as European mariners of old rejoiced in the compass. So thoroughly immersed in their machinery they become an integral part of it, fractal artists are first to know the synthesis of man and machine Western philosophers have long dreamed of but never understood. For the fractal image is the face of chaos, determined at every point yet wholly unpredictable, first-born of reason yet utterly irrational." Images: Reveries, Maze, Angelus.
