Fractal Geometry

June 8, 2012 § Leave a comment

I took the boys to the Fernbank Science Center today. I remember going there as a child and I loved it! Sadly the planetarium show was too late in the afternoon for us – I didn’t want to hang out and/or interrupt naps – but we did enjoy our visit. Both boys thought Apollo 6 was way cool!

I was fascinated by something entirely different – the photographs of fractal geometry on the walls. Immediately I saw the opportunity to make some amazing quilts.

These are Mandlebrot images:

This is from the Mathematical Association of America

and this one is from sciencephotolibrary

All incredible and all wanting me to play with color, shape and design. I’m salivating just thinking about it!
