The Fractal images presented on this
site have been created by one of the members of the Durville family. We have
discovered Fractal Art during the winter 2003-2004, and have been
"playing" with Fractal images since then.
was the first one to be involved in Fractals. He was first exposed to the science of
Fractals during the course of his work as a scientist during the early years of
this new science (mid-1980s). It was at that time more of a curiosity for him, keeping
in touch with the evolution of the field of science. Now, it has become a more serious hobby activity for him (he still works a more regular job with his own company Optical Fiber Systems Inc) and most of the fractals displayed here are his own creation. Frederic is also a member of the Fine Art America community where you can purchase some his creations.
Suzanne was the one who re-discovered the
Fractals as an art. As a fiber artist / weaver,
she plays with weave patterns and yarn colors to create various fabric
textures and colors. As she was exploring new ways to express her creativity and
generate various textures and color patterns, she stumbled upon the generation
of Fractal images as a new form of art. After some dabbling in fractal art, she got Frederic involved in this relatively new art form. Her focus is now back onto fibers and other crafts as well as farming and soap making.
The other family
member who got involved with Fractals is Alex. As
a teenage artist, he was eager to try almost any new form of art to express his profuse
creativity. He is now concentrating on less creative (and somewhat less exciting) activities as he studies computer sciences in college.
