"Alien Land": fractal animation produces a living, porous planet
Gerry Mantha’s “Alien Land: A Fractal Journey” (2017), builds a fictitious porous living planet (green with photosynthesis) as a siphonophore in animation using fractal math. It starts out with a lot of scary open mouths and dangling jaws.
The animation was produced by the Mandelbulb 3D fractal generator.
But I was reminded of the floating mountains in “Avatar” (2009).
