This site consists of a gallery of computer graphics using a free fractal image generator program called Apohysis.

The concept of fractal is a geometrical concept introduced by French mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot, and Apohysis is a software program that creates graphic images based on these mathematical formulas, etc. Apohysis is open source and several different versions exist. The following is a list of the most common

The shapes generated by the software are mathematical products, but they are organic in shape and have a sense of meaning.

Fractal theory, which was born out of geometry, has been applied to various fields, and at one time, fractal compression and other techniques were created that could produce image quality that exceeded that of the JPEG image format, but are now rarely used due to patent issues and the time it takes to encode them.

In such a situation, the concept of fractal is also effective as a basic concept when thinking about things.

In Japanese, it is called self-similarity.

In other words, it is the idea that the characteristics of the parts also affect the whole and are interrelated.

For example, the leaves of coniferous forests are thin, but the overall shape of these trees is also characterized by being long and slender, while the shape of trees in broad-leaved forests is also horizontally spread out. In addition to such organic matter, mountains made of rock are steep, while those made of soil are gentle.

Such characteristics can be seen in a wider range of fields.

Fractal theory, holographic theory, chaos theory, etc. will grow to become important concepts for judging things in the future.
