Fractals & Chaos Assignment for 10/10

By tomorrow, read Why Fractals are So Soothing, a January, 2017 article written by Florence Williams for The Atlantic about some work done by physicist Richard Taylor (and his magnificent hair).

And don’t forget that your designs are due on Monday, October 16th.  On the 16th, I want you to print and submit the following:

  1. The Fractal Art Show flyer, with your name and notes about official vs. additional submissions, folded in half around the rest of the papers below.
  2. One completed design in three of the following categories.
    • Spiral
    • Tree
    • Fern
    • Realistic
    • Artistic
  3. On the back of each design, you should write the following:
    • Your name
    • The category of submission
    • A title (for realistic and artistic categories especially)
    • A note or arrow indicating which way is up
    • Whether the submission is an “Official” submission, to be considered in an above category, or an “Additional Work,” which will be included in a sixth category for works beyond your three official submissions
  4. The template for one of your official submissions. This is for a game we will play to “pin the template to the fractal,” i.e., match which template goes with which fractal design. To do this on a Windows computer, I recommend using the Snipping Tool, instructions for which can be found here. On an Apple computer, just press the Command (⌘)-Shift-4 to turn the cursor into a crosshair and click/drag a box around just the part of the screen you want to copy
