The two posters in this NEW Poster Duets set challenge us to expand the way we look at the world and then invite us to go out and explore. One features this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, "We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery...The world is all gates, all opportunities." The second features a quote from the book, The Fractal Geometry of Nature, by Benoit Mandelbrot. It encourages us to think outside the box by pointing out that, "Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor, does lightning travel in a straight line."
The backgrounds on these two posters showcase designs created by fractal geometry. Developed as a way to measure irregular shapes -- like clouds, coastlines, mountain ranges, lightning bolts, and more -- fractal geometry helps us better understand the complex world in which we live. And, the intricate designs a computer generates when calculating fractal formulas are just plain cool.
