Fractal Labs "Organism" (close up)

Newer Older

This fine detail from an organic fractal structure programmed by Tom Beddard.

Tom's application "Fractal Lab" allows the user to move around (in 3 dimensional space) this 3D fractal structure, moving in and out to visualize fine detail.

This real time exploration (like a video game) is enabled because Fractal Lab is based on Computer Graphics Card shader programs which allow these ultra complex structures to be calculated many times per second, bringing the visualization to life with viewpoint based animation.

I'll say it again. This is the most amazing computer graphic art program I have seen in a very long time.

    Thanks everyone. I first discovered Tom Beddard through his Flickr photostream www.flickr.com/photos/subblue/ which is full of interesting generative/computational artwork.

    With Fractal Lab, Tom has now enabled everyone to explore and create these amazing images. www.subblue.com/blog/2011/3/5/fractal_lab

    You will need a recent version of the Google Chrome browser to run the fractal generator. My experience is that it runs best on a Mac. But it also worked (with some UI display problems) on a Windows 7 machine.

    Thanks. I really like your solution to the problem of using real time GPU to get render-level quality screen captures. The results speak for themselves .
