    from Wikipedia,

    Fractal art is a form of algorithmic art created by calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results as still images, animations, and media

    From what I understand Fractals are equations that create images or sequences that no matter how much you zoom into the pattern it will repeat over and over looking exactly the same as the larger image. Fractals are used in technologies such as antennae because the repeating fractal pattern picks up more frequencies with a smaller antennae reducing size and efficiency. Note: I got all of this information a video NOVA created about fractals.

    @Graycat – It all depends on if anyone we know in the theme business decides to package them up into a complete theme for us to feature here…

    @Dianna – Being .jpg files these should be just fine for your Mac…

  10. Asian Angel

    @zamani55 – I do not believe that these images were created to be the kind that require special 3D glasses.
