Self-similar surfacesThe work "Felsenzucker" deals with the process-controlled generation of structures that appear infinite and the creation of self-similar surfaces.
The theoretical basis of the project is based on an exploration of fractals, the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets. The Mandelbrot set, defined by scientist Benoit B. Mandelbrot at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Institute, lies mathematically in the complex number plane. Mathematical iteration creates fragments that have visual self-similar chaotic structures that can be defined infinitely. Fractals look the same when viewed as a whole and when zoomed in. The larger the zoom and iteration factor, the more complex structures can be represented. Behind the apparent chaos there is a superordinate order.
