A couple of years ago, a fellow Willamette University alum introduced me to Professor Junpei Sekino's mathematical art. Sekino, the son of a famous Japanese printmaker, uses mathematical equations to create computer-generated images called fractal art.
For the last 25 years, Sekino has been writing programs and creating images of fractal art. When he first started working on this digital art form, it would take up to a day to generate a fractal image. Today, it's only a matter of minutes.
Sekino's computer art is a dazzling display of brilliant colors and intricate patterns. Many of his works, particularly landscape renditions, are reminiscent of Asian art. To see more of his beautiful digital creations, visit his online gallery here.
