|Exhibition announcement at the New Moment gallery
Through centuries, in his own need for cognition, man has been confronting gradually, with new view of nature, and in certain periods of his progress he has been accepting new conceptions - new scientific paradigms. In last decades, fractal geometry and “chaos theory" development, has made it possible for us to observe reality on a completely new way. Nowadays, we are not satisfied with classic mathematics, which is based on straight line and shows complete uselessness when we want to describe trees, rivers, clouds, lightning. Now is created new multidisciplinary science, which explores complexity in extensive signification. Allied with extraordinary possibilities of computers, it helps us to understand - how nature, in her amazing way, creates 100 meters high tree from such a little seed. How one completely tenuous influence, such as spread of butterfly wings, can so much intensify, to completely change weather tomorrow. However, this time we can forget scientific aspect of fractals. Winner of the Nobel prize, Richard Feynman once said: "In carafe of vine is all physics... and molecules, and viscosity, and refraction of light... But we can drink that vine and forget all of it!" Alike, I suggest to forget about all scientific implications of fractal geometry and let us enjoy in visual -- beauty and aesthetic of specially designed fractal objects by Milan Dobrojevic. Milan shows us how he turned his PC machine into graphical laboratory, machine capable to experimentize with chaos and produce these magic pictures. In fact, It’s hard to believe that they are based on simple algebraic terms. After all, behind those terms is hiding one sophisticated knowledge about imaginary and complexity numbers, processes of recursive iterations, but first of all, one strong motivation for experimentation and creation of new art dimensions.
