Generative 3D fractal worlds - there is a whole world that is enclosed in a small formula.

I do not want to specifically deal with the philosophical aspects of this phenomenon, but in my opinion all of these "worlds" exist in reality,only in the mathematical space rather than the physical. They are created by the Creator in the very moment when he creates the math.

The artist (or programmer) simply displays these mathematical worlds in human-readable form. However a traditional artist also does not create worlds. They show what they see, or create an image based on what they saw. In the case of 3D fractals the situation is somewhat different. When an artist is working with formulas he often does not know what a given set of parameters will create. This is reminiscent of the photographer who walks around the city looking for interesting scenery, but the artist moves not only in space but also through billions of "parallel universes".

Few samples:

Amazing designs, especially the mechanical ones.

Amazing work. My favorite is the first, it looks like a very intricate unwater world. Very good explanation of mathematical equations that translate to art.
