Fractals of the Week | I’ve Got Newton on ‘Dis!


Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 17.12.20

This week, I feature images using the math of a certain cranky English guy, responsible for the Laws of Motion, and those Harry Potter-esque alchemical experiments in his attic, trying to convert base metals into gold, and create the Sorcerer’s, er, I mean Philosopher’s Stone. These pieces, a couple released for the first time on this blog, also use symmetry transformations, or mapping, from a range of mathematicians, including one (#2) whose work has been featured before, Felix Klein. Regardless of their origination, these were fun to play with, and will be followed by more in future.

Each of the full-sized images measures 1600×900 pixels, so feel free to double-click for complete ginormification.
