In the Beginning by Don Bristow
Contemporary Mathematical Art
Triggered by the then newly published book The Fractal Geometry of Nature by Benoit Mandelbrot, Bristow’s exploration of mathematics for art began in 1982. Bristow’s earliest experimental prints were produced on 4″ wide thermal paper strips, and later on 24″ rolls of inkjet paper. But today he outsources his images to companies that specialize in high-end dye-sublimination printing on the best materials available, aluminum and acrylic.
The mathematical art by Don Bristow has been featured on the covers of While-U-Wait Magazine in Tyler, Texas, Commercial Real Estate Network Magazine in Atlanta, Georgia, and Commercial Real Estate Network Magazine in Dallas, Texas.
Discovering the Significance of Fractal Art by Don Bristow was published at Plinth & Chintz on June 6, 2013. The article describes my fascination and struggle with fractal art through the history of the development of CHAOTICA from 1982 through 2013. You can read the article by clicking on the thumbnail image.
Starting on page 72, the creative feature article Controlling the Chaos by award-winning journalist Laura Krantz appeared in the November 2014 issue of BSCENE Magazine in Tyler, Texas. The article was boldly illustrated with some of my more “powerful” renderings. You can read the article by clicking on the thumbnail image.
Starting on page 1, the article Math, Design Merge to Create Man’s Fractal Art by journalist Emily Guevara appeared in the July 5, 2015 issue of The Tyler Morning Telegraph in Tyler, Texas. You can read the article by clicking on the thumbnail image.
Journey into the Realm of CHAOTICA is a zoom movie that demonstrates the search for Cable Data by Don Bristow. Turn your speakers on and enjoy the journey! Cable Data is a single panel rendering on aluminum, 48″(w) x 48″(h), and you can view an image of the piece in the gallery. Challenge – See if you can spot the instance of Cable Data towards the very end of the movie.
