Critique and a Science for the Sake of Art: Fractals and the Visual Arts

Noel Gray
1991 Leonardo: Journal of the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology  
and the arts: "Therefore, we shall argue that fractal geometry appears to have created a new category of art, next to art for art's sake and art for the sake of commerce: art for the sake of science (  ...  and art or 'an art for the sake of science', see F. Nietzsche, The Birth of Tragedy, W. Kaufmann, tran. (New York: Vintage, 1967) pp. 52-92.  ...  Hence the role or judgment of the informed observer (the critic) is to determine the presence of these elements in the object and to discuss this presence in relation to the notion of 'good art'.  ...

Calligraphic Design in Fractal Model Based on Rectangle Collage Decomposition

Tedjo Darmanto
2021 RSF Conference Series Business Management and Social Sciences  
The short-cut way to encode the fractal object is by copy-editing the representative IFS code based on the position of the cells according to the position of each component of the stroke.  ...  This paper delivers the short-cut way to design the artistic calligraphic characters based on the modification of the existing form of the simple rectangle fractal object to construct the stroke form of  ...  Collage of Rectangle Object To begin with and for the sake of easiness in designing, the initial collage of the rectangle object can be composed of four collage components in an upright position as can  ...

1998 Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology  
Istvan and Magdolna Hargittai for their suggestions about the importance and nature of symmetry, especially in science and art.  ...  This dedication to "knowledge for its own sake" is an internal value. The consequences of that knowledge is an external value.  ...

Entertaining with science, educating with dance

Jennifer Burg, Karola Luttringhaus
2006 Computers in Entertainment  
The two collaborations wove computer science not only into the production but also into the content of the performance.  ...  The first production played on the Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Ratio and involved real-time fractal computation in response to the dancers' movements.  ...  The hope was that there might be some who would attend the performances for the sake of the math/science theme, and thus be introduced to modern dance; and others would attend for the sake of the dance  ...

A New Kind of Beauty Out of the Underlying Scaling of Geographic Space

Bin Jiang, Daniel Z. Sui
2013 Professional Geographer  
To paraphrase Mandelbrot, this is the beauty for the sake of science rather than for art's sake or for the sake of commerce.  ...  The paper further draws upon the previous work of Nikos Salingaros and Richard Taylor on the beauty in architecture and arts to support our argument.  ...  To paraphrase Mandelbrot (1989) , this is beauty for the sake of science rather than for the sake of arts or commerce.  ...

Leaf Morphology: An Interpretation of Fractals in Architectural Design

Anam Ali, Umar Ejaz, Shazaib Khalid
2019 Journal of Art Architecture and Built Environment  
Nature is the primary source of inspiration for human mind. Our world is full of interesting natural phenomena, organisms and systems that are essential for the existence of life on earth.  ...  Mathematics of self-similar shapes has existed for centuries. We have now realized that it is a natural phenomenon and is known as fractals.  ...  Natural patterns are not just there to be imitated for the sake of aesthetics but also to develop an understanding about design strategies.  ...

Polynomiography and applications in art, education, and science

Bahman Kalantari
2003 Educators program from the 30th annual conference on Computer graphics and interactive techniques - GRAPH '03  
Polynomiography is the art and science of visualizing approximation of the zeros of complex polynomials. Informally speaking, polynomiography allows one to create colorful images of polynomials.  ...  These images can subsequently be recolored in many ways, using one's own creativity and artistry. Polynomiography has tremendous applications in the visual arts, education, and science.  ...  simply for the sake of creating.  ...

Fractally-organized Connectionist Networks: Conjectures and Preliminary Results [article]

Vincenzo De Florio
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In particular I conjecture that fractally organized connectionist networks may provide a convenient means to achive what Leibniz calls an "art of complication", namely an effective way to encapsulate complexity  ...  I conjecture that absolute simplicity might not be an essential attribute of connectionism, and that it may be effectively exchanged with a requirement for relative simplicity, namely simplicity with respect  ...  for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT).  ...
