Ephemeral is a screen saver that draws animated IFS fractals, giving an ever–changing display of complex, natural shapes. The fractals evoke the structure of many objects found in nature such as plants, crystals, fire, and clouds.
The fractals are drawn as a swarm of hundreds of thousands of dots, with each one following a unique path. The relationship between these paths brings the dots together to reveal the structure inherent in the mathematical rules that define the fractal.
Try running Ephemeral a few times to get an idea of the variety it’s capable of producing: there’s always something new to see!
