Many-sided Artist Contest - The VotingHello dear friends!Many-sided Artist Contest - The Voting by Lilyas
Finally here we go! After quite a few days of selecting, reviewing and voting I proudly announce the round of the last sixteen artists of the Slightly Different Art Contest!!!

Although prior mathematical thinkers like Cantor, Hausdorff, Julia, Koch, Peano, Poincare, Richardson, Sierpinski, Weierstrass and others had attained isolated insights of fractal understanding, such ideas were largely ignored until Mandelbrot's genius forged them at a single blow into a gorgeously coherent and fruitful discipline.
Mandelbrot derived the term "fractal" from the Latin verb frangere, meaning to break or fragment. Basically, a fractal is any pattern that reveals greater complexity as it is enlarged. Thus, fractals graphically portray the notion of "worlds
