The many-angled ones, who lurk at the bottom of the Mandelbrot set.

    In this exhibit, we have the architeuthidae fractalis, more commonly known as the Giant Fractal Squid. Some researchers have been known to suddenly turn to stone while observing the snake-like tentacles.

    As someone who used to do a lot of work with Fractint, that looks more like a Julia Set fractal, than a Mandelbrot...although, it is true that every point in a Julia set directly translates to one in a Mandelbrot set...but it does look more like a Julia set display.

      You used to work with fractint? What sort of work was that?

      • kallisti says:

        Yes, I used to do art with fractint. It used to be up on some on-line galleries...but they have long since disappeared, and I can't find them on my hard drive or backups...they were probably on floppys that died.

    Hey, it's a basket star! They're creepy, especially when you see them moving around.

    Fractal dentata?

    Ah, yes, that would be Haeckel; half nature illustrator, half on serious drugs. We have many of his prints on our walls.

    Heh. I just started reading The Atrocity Archives today - a co-worker got fed up with asking me whether I'd read it yet every time he saw me, and finally lent me his copy :-)
