Nondream digital fractal painting, 1990? by Chris Wayan

Just a nubbly abstract design grown from a tiny fractal seed. Recursion or fractal self-similarity fascinates me the way symmetry fascinated early European and Indian artists and deliberate asymmetry fascinated Japanese artists.

Pineconish fractal design, in blue, green, yellow and orange, floating on a black field
I think it's because my life has that quality: small dream-vignettes turn out to encapsulate what happens later on a much larger scale. And I don't think I'm the only such dreamer. Most experienced dreamworkers I know have noticed such structures--classic fractal traits. But it doesn't get talked about much. I suspect it's because the strongest proponent of such a dream-model, Jung, died before fractals were understood.
