Working with fractal patterns I have been using techniques such as decalomania and mixed media to develop imaginary compositions from the microcosm to the microcosm.
Decalcomania refers to a process of transferring art material from one surface to another by pressing the surfaces together. When the surfaces are pulled apart the tension between them causes the art material to branch into a fractal pattern. The branches display the components of self similarity, scaling, and the fractal dimension. Each time the surfaces are pressed together the fractal patterns become smaller and smaller.
