If I am postulating that the universe is fractal in nature, it makes sense that structures formed by molecules behaving in their natural way should be recognizable as fractals. Such is the case with frost, turbulence, and bubbles. Just do a little Google search with each of those terms alongside fractal, and you’ll see what I mean. Mandelbrot made groundbreaking progress modelling turbulence, which had confounded mathematicians before him, using fractal geometry.
It also makes sense that in my random wanderings through the fractal universes I create, I encounter images that remind me of these phenomena. Such is the case with these two fractals which I chose to paint. I especially like the way the bubbles in Turbulence & Bubbles look like they are in the process of being blown, sometimes from multiple locations, and melding together when they meet, just like real bubbles would.
