Evolving self portraits with Mandelbrot math

Abstract

expressionist action painting is compared and contrasted with the mathematical dynamics, along with the gesture-like features that are brought forth through the process of iteration in the complex plane. Keywords: Mandelbrot set; genetic algorithm; portraiture; image comparison; gestural painting; evolutionary art. Reference to this paper should be made as follows: Ventrella, J. (2015) `Evolving self portraits with Mandelbrot math', Int. J. Arts and Technology, Vol. 8, No. 2, pp.115­131. Biographical notes: Jeffrey Ventrella is an Artist/Programmer. He writes and lectures about virtual worlds, artificial life, and computational art. Introduction Imagine an artist who takes digital photographs of animals and plants, and then manipulates the images using a software tool such as photoshop. The possibilities for expression using this method are practically infinite. Many artists work in this way. It combines the craft of capturing a moment in time, and a viewpoint in space, with the craft of image-manipulation, for poetic interpretation. Now imagine that instead of manipulating photographic images of the subject, the artist has the ability to return to the subject and perform a kind of genetic mutation that transforms it into some variation.
