Fractals in 3D: Gestalt

Four-dimensional quaternions (fractals) are visualized by projecting them into three-dimensional space. Instead of modeling objects of human imagination the realm of mathematics is explored. Only the variables of one formula (x[n+1]=x[n]^p-c) were changed. It took me about a year to get an idea of the transformations and shapes which could be expressed by this formula. Almost another year was needed to render the sequences which I decided to use.

The experimental animator Thorsten Fleisch with German origins, participates again in Animacam with Gestalt. After presenting at last year his work Energie, the animator shows a depiction of fractals.
