During the Month of July 2023, this artiwork is available only through the Fuller Lodge Art Gallery. Clouds were chosen to demonstrate fractals. We often see clouds which mimic each other at smaller sizes. A fractal is a curve or geometric figure, each part of which has the same statistical character as the whole. Fractals are useful in modeling structures (such as eroded coastlines or snowflakes) in which similar patterns recur at progressively smaller scales, and in describing partly random or chaotic phenomena such as crystal growth, fluid turbulence, and galaxy formation. This is the first in a planned series of cloud paintings to demonstrate fractals, and in general the affinity between nature, painting and mathematics.
