Arthur C Clark, co-writer of “2001: A Space Odyssey” along with Stanley Kubrick, tells the fascinating story of the discovery of the Mandlebrot Set and the beginning of a new generation of fractals, fractal images, fractal geometry and fractal image generators. The music is provided by David Gilmore from the band “Pink Floyd” and is awesome in itself!
2001: A Space Odyssey is a 1968 British-American science fiction film produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick. The screenplay was co-written by Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke, and was partially inspired by Clarke’s short story The Sentinel. Clarke concurrently wrote the novel 2001: A Space Odyssey which was published soon after the film was released. The story deals with a series of encounters between humans and mysterious black monoliths that are apparently affecting human evolution, and a space voyage to Jupiter tracing a signal emitted by one such monolith found on the moon. Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood star as the two astronauts on this voyage, with Douglas Rain as the voice of the sentient computer HAL 9000 who has full control over their spaceship. The film is frequently described as an “epic film“, both for its length and scope, and for its affinity with classical epics.
I put this together from fractal images made in J-Wildfire and an old image taken from a book of anatomy about 100 years old. I used Photoshop to layer the images and add a little “liquify effect” to the bottom flame.
