After the first two „Dimensions“ and „Iterations“ collections the third collection of Fuenf is titled „Interactions“ and further explores fractals, natural forms, each part of which repeats the whole. In mathematics, a fractal is an abstract object used to describe and simulate naturally occurring objects. Artificially created fractals commonly exhibit similar patterns at increasingly small scales. If the replication is exactly the same at every scale, it is called a self-similar pattern. For certain time fractals have been mesmerizing mathematicians, graphic designers and digital artists with their hypnotic shapes and perfect proportions.
The research on fractals has, however, come to symbolize the dystopia of nowadays, when the digital is continuously turning into our primary natural environment. Most of us feel the clash between technologies and nature, the new and the old, the future and the past. We are slowly getting tired of social media networks and trying to find some beauty in imperfections: we are not machines and we have the right for mistakes. Intuition and honesty start to play a bigger role while the rational and systematic way of thinking is getting less prevalent. More and more people start to ask themselves: what will be next and what is the direction we are going to? Is it really the right one?
