Hi all. I just posted an update on DeviantART on the BMFAC. Also of note is that Javier Barrallo wrote an article on the contest for a Spanish science magazine. All of the winning submissions to the 2011 BMFAC were included in the article and all are inside the print magazine. I posted pics of the article and a few that Javier sent from the first exhibit in Logroño, in Northern Spain. My piece, "Gordian Twist" was chosen by the editor of the magazine for the cover art. Here's a link to the journal entry. http://haltenny.deviantart.com/journal/2011-BMFAC-News-Update-299664037 I could also upload pics here if you want, I just didn't know the best place to put them smiley

Congratulations for the cover art Hal, it is a great image!
Also thank you for the info... sad that BMFAC still never put any info / images from the exhibit at their site... Sceptical

sad but true, even a dedicated query from me for a press handout or any other info about the exhibit was replied with silence. the local press here was quite interested in a homie, being amongst the winners of an international art contest, but i could not even tell them where in logroño this exhibit takes place. embarrassing!  undecided

thanks hal for the update, glad to see that this contest wasn't a hallucination.
i agree with johan, your image comes out great as cover art!

Yes, I agree that the BMFAC site has not done a very good job following up on the progress. Javier did say he was waiting for some other pictures and newspapers reviews that he will share as soon as received from local organizers. He also said he has saved 25 brochures from the exhibit, one for each winner. I am assuming at some point he will send them to us... Thanks very much for the kind words!

Thanks very much Johan. BMFAC should be much more forthcoming with info. They should know it means a lot to us...

This is going to be a massive posting... sorry C...  afro

I got the PDF of the article in the "redes" magazine from Hal, and managed to extract the text and Googletranslate it (with all the strangeness that will cause) Nothing very interesting or new in it, but I thought at least some of us might be interested:

E L E FRACTAL ART
By PROFESSOR ER JAVI
Barrallo CALONGE
(UNIVERSITY OF THE BASQUE COUNTRY)
This is called fractal
irregular object whose structure
or fragmented repeats
different scales. The term
was coined by the mathematician
Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975,
derived from the Latin fractus, which
means broken. This type
objects belong to many
of the forms present in the
nature, like trees,
mountains, galaxies,
reefs or clouds.
The main characteristic of a
fractal object is its roughness
and irregularity, which will

is the self-similarity of fractals,
ie, ownership by the
that some objects show
copies of themselves to different
scales. For example, the
structure of the coastline
Spain is very similar to be
observed on a scale of 1000
kilometers at a scale
100, 10 or 1 kilometer. And even
if we decrease the range of
observation up to a meter, the
contour of the rocks forming

FRACTAL ART
It Beno MANDELBROT
In 2005, the discoverer of
fractals, Benoit Mandelbrot,
gave his name to the contest
International fractal art.
Since then this event
has served as indisputable
thermometer and benchmark
the evolution of fractal art.
In life, Benoît Mandelbrot
chaired three editions of
competition (2005, 2007 and 2009) and
their subsequent exhibitions.
During his address established
profile of the contest, worked with
the jury, wrote prefaces to
catalogs and whenever you
was opened in person may
exposures containing
the selected images.
On October 14, 2010
Mandelbrot died. During
four decades led the
aware of numerous
mathematical and inspired
scientists from other disciplines. The
fourth edition of this competition
is dedicated to his memory. Its
enthusiasm for the project is
irreplaceable and will be very difficult
fill the void it leaves us, but
Aliette Mandelbrot and his widow
fractal expert Michael
Barnsley have taken over
as honorary chairmen.
Although fractal art is only
a small part of the work
developed by Benoît
Mandelbrot in his lifetime, this
competition serves as a tribute
the entire fractal geometry.
As in the three
previous editions, the jury

FRACTAL IN
THREE DIMENSIONS
The evolution of fractal art
in its first twenty years
of life has been really
surprising. And one wonders
how it will be in twenty
years. Programs
Fractals have evolved
Incredibly and reached
a level of sophistication
seemed impossible as recently as
a decade. And that only
we are facing at the beginning
of this form of expression
combines art and math.
When we contemplate the
fractal images first
dazzled us for years
80, now seem antiquated.
The fractal art moves large
speed and, like other
artistic trends, presents
a huge variety of techniques
and styles. To this promotes easy
access to digital art, since in
our days are not necessary
stations
working with
powerful graphical environments
but computers
are low cost personal
capable of effectively
the necessary calculations. The
Forums provide places
to meet and exchange and
Internet provides resources
teaching and tutorials
to plunge into the world
creating a fractal.
In this evolution include
fractals undoubtedly

the Mandelbulbs and Mandelboxes

Almost 50% of images

to go into the third
