Underwater Chaotica Fractal
“Underwater Chaos” – 3D Seascape Fractal

How was “Underwater Chaos” generated?

This digital art piece known as “Underwater Chaos” was generated using Chaotica. Chaotica is a freeware fractal generator that allows the user complete control over color dynamics, animation, and fractal iterations. It is the fractal software we wish Apophysis was.

What are fractals?

In mathematics, a fractal is a self-similar subset of Euclidean space whose fractal dimension strictly exceeds its topological dimension. Fractals appear the same at different levels, as illustrated in successive magnifications of the Mandelbrot set; because of this, fractals are encountered ubiquitously in nature.

Fractals exhibit similar patterns at increasingly small scales called self similarity, also known as expanding symmetry or unfolding symmetry; if this replication is exactly the same at every scale, as in the Menger sponge,[5] it is called affine self-similar.
