Fractal, fractalist

Hodgkin: Burst 25

Last revised 9/22/2014. Return to Major concepts. See fragmentation.

< Un baroque fractal (by Severo Sarduy) and L'activité fractaliste, by Klaus Ottmann, a set of six pages in Art Press Feb 1990. Presenting notabmu Carloz Ginzburg. They include black and white pictures of works by Ginzburg, Hautem, Hodgkin and Laramée.

We translate two paragraphs :

Today, Fractal art can be divided into two categories. The first group is mainly constituted by scientists such as Heinz-Otto Peitgen and Peter H. Richter in Germany, Clifford A. Pickover in the USA and the Asterisco Ponto Asterisco in Brazil (constituted by an architect, two scientists, a musician, two engineers an one mathemaician, whose work is present in a special secion of the 20th International Sao Paula biennal). This group of non-artists insists on beauty and formal creation, categories that have been forlors for long in contemporary ar. They underscore the democratic potential, or computer art.

The second group includes a growing number of contemporary artists who, within their preferred medium, use elements of fractalization and chaos - so:
- in France:
. Carlos Ginzburg (photo compositing),
. Marie-Benédicte Hauterm (photo) (*in 2014, we don't find any image)
. Jean-Paul Agosti (painting) (* no digtital art properly)
- in Austria:
. Peter Weibel (multi-media),
- in the USA:
. Eve Andrée Laramée (sculpture), (*not digital)
- Carter Hodgkin (painting)
- Elien Carey (photo), (* not digital).

Contrasting with the first group, these artists is frequently inspired by fractal and chaos theory, but does not limit itself to their limit..
