In this art work we explore the Julia set f_c (z)=z^2+c where c∈(-2,0). The fractal curve in each of the 22 Perspex frames is the contour of the fractal. We believe that the 3D representation can help understand what we could only imagine – the behavior of fractal. This method indicates that indeed in this permutation for different c∈(0,2) lead to a convergence of the fractal -a line.

This art work is a three-dimensional object that describes a fractal convergence (Julia's group) following a 3D expression presented by a series of 22 different and parallel planes. These planes are built from 22 Perspex frames. On each Perspex engraved shape, the shape is obtained by changing the constant C from 0.6 to 1.4 in equal jumps. Together, a three-dimensional shape is created and gives a glimpse of the fractal in all three-dimensional sides.

The work sits on a podium with internal lighting that illuminates the engraving line and creates a special three-dimensional floating shape. In addition, the work is accompanied by a video showing all stages of fractal development from circle to line.
