Swirl the fractal with your finger, or using your phone's tilt sensor.
High-res prints available on request.
Press 📷 to choose a video source.
Press 🌈 to switch between image colors or color table rendering.
There are three rendering modes:
A: The pixel z0 = x + yi takes the average color of source pixels at z0, z1, z2, ..., zn.
B: The pixel zn = x + yi takes the average color of source pixels at zn, zn-1, zn-2, ..., z0. For each zi, there are two solutions for zi-1. We pick the one nearest to zi.
C: The image is first made into black and white, by thresholding or dithering. Then for each pixel z0 we find the escape iteration number by finding the first zi which is on a white pixel. We use that number as an index into the color table.
Press 🌀 then drag along the picture to change the fractal (Julia coordinate).
