Have you ever marveled at the beauty and complexity of mathematics, from geometry to algebra, from calculus to chaos theory? If so, you will love the Fractal Cosmos 2018 Wall Calendar, featuring the stunning fractal artworks of Alice Kelley, a talented artist with a passion for mathematics. ## Fractals: An Intuitive Glimpse into the Infinite Order of Nature Fractals are geometric objects that exhibit self-similarity, meaning that they are composed of smaller copies of themselves at different scales. Fractals can be generated by simple mathematical rules that repeat infinitely, creating intricate structures that often resemble natural phenomena. Fractals can also be found in many scientific fields, such as physics, biology, chemistry, astronomy, and computer science. Fractals reveal the beauty and complexity of mathematics, as they show how simple formulas can produce infinite variations and unexpected patterns. Fractals also demonstrate how mathematics can model and explain natural phenomena, such as growth, erosion, turbulence, diffusion, and aggregation. Fractals are an intuitive glimpse into the infinite order that composes the natural world. ## Alice Kelley: A Fractal Artist with a Passion for Mathematics Alice Kelley is a fractal artist who has been fascinated by mathematics since she was a child. She discovered fractals in college, when she took a course on chaos theory and nonlinear dynamics. She was amazed by how fractals could capture the essence of chaos and order, randomness and determinism, simplicity and complexity. She decided to explore fractals as an artistic medium, using computer software to create her own fractal images. Alice Kelley uses various tools and techniques to create her fractal artworks, such as iteration, recursion, transformation, coloring, shading, layering, and filtering. She experiments with different parameters and algorithms to generate unique and diverse fractal forms. She also draws inspiration from various sources, such as nature, science fiction, mythology, spirituality, and music. Alice Kelley's fractal artworks are stunning examples of mathematical art, as they combine logic and creativity, precision and expression, abstraction and realism. Her fractal images are not only visually appealing, but also intellectually stimulating, as they invite the viewers to explore the underlying mathematics and concepts behind them. ## Fractal Cosmos 2018 Wall Calendar: A Year of Awe-Inspiring Fractal Artwork on Your Wall The Fractal Cosmos 2018 Wall Calendar is a product of Amber Lotus Publishing, a company that specializes in creating calendars that celebrate art, spirituality, nature, and diversity.
