Advertisement: The Infinity Set
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: Advertisement: We are proudly presenting our latest kitchenware
set featuring a design distilled for centuries by moulders all over the world; and
based on the latest scientific breakthroughs.

The set includes four pieces:
  • Cantor fork :: now you can pin a single kiwi seed. Twice in a row.
  • Recursive spoon :: it will never let you spill a drop of soup. Ever.
  • Koch knife :: to delicately cut hair-thin slices out of an egg. A raw egg.
  • The Infinity Set :: the set includes itself. As a subset.

Every piece of the set is inscribed with our Julia logo and our motto
"The Infinities are Possible". Limited quantities. Unlimited price. The
kiwi, the drop of soup and the egg are not included in the box, but
could be ordered separately.

PS1. I dedicate this picture to my colleague and friend, a professor
from Sofia University, who passed away in the middle of May, 2012.

PS2. I would like to thank http://alibaba.com/member/senyorgarden.html
and http://www.bucantabenim.com for the permission to use a photo
from their catalog as a groundwork of my contest entry.

Awesome idea!
I'm a goldsmith who loves fractals, and I registered here just to ask you if I could use your design and make these in silver?
And if they turn out nice we could cast them to make copies. What do you think?

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I really do appreciate them a lot. As for the details about the making of this picture, there is nothing extraordinary.

When I look at fractal images, almost all of them share four predominant characteristics:
  • they are very colourful
  • they show a gazillion of details
  • they represent some pattern in an otherwise chaotic scene
  • they are a result of some math formula or algorithm

So, because the guidelines for the contest asked for uniqueness, I decided to make the opposite - a fractal image that is not colourful, that pictures as few objects as possible with a complete lack of chaos ... and all this to be done manually.

So, here is the immediate answer to your questions. I did not use any 3D modelling software. I used a photograph of a real fork/spoon/knife (see the description for the exact URL). Then I spent 3 and a half days modifying it manually with GIMP. So, the fractal was painted, not drawn.

Again, thanks everyone. BTW I also want to have this set ...

Your concept should win some type of creative award - this could possibly be a new campaign for Mad Men (TV show)

Stand up and count yourself a great artist!

I suppose 99% 3d program and 1% fractal inspiration.
