Elmfract Fractals

image of wokkel fractal I made this fractal for the cover of my Ph.D. thesis. It was inspired by the infrared spectrum that I had been computing.

About this Site

This website is dedicated to images of fractals I make with elmfract, my personal fractal program. Elmfract started out in 1999 as a programming exercise in C++, but it grew into a full-fledged obession, er, hobby, because of the artistic aspect. The fractals on this site are constructed from formulas of a few lines that determine the overall shape as well as the surface texture details. That is why I think that the images sometimes have a surprising natural look to them, although they are completely computer generated.

A first attempt to demonstrate the underlying principles can be found on the explanation page.

When I am not making fractals, I play some classical guitar, [tiny image of a guitar], also in the TEC ensemble, or work on medical software for a big medical imaging company.

Site Map

What's new on the site (or old) is at the bottom of this page; last update: March 19, 2012.

There is a page with recent images. Here I show what I recently made. Not necessarily very nice, but recent :^).

There is a page with examples that I keep to test the capabilities of elmfract.

There is a gallery page with images that I like a lot.

A first attempt to explain some of the background of the fractals is now available.

If you want to mail me about the images, you can find an email address on the contact page.
