# Make yourself a Mandelbrot image

Make yourself a Mandelbrot image

Explore yourself, into the unknown, where no one has been before and see what you can find. A never ending journey into ever more strange patterns, perhaps logical, perhaps random, somehow alive maybe.  Who knows, it is for you to explore and make your assessment.

These images are simply derived from equations - just maths. This is exciting and will make you wonder. Making you wonder is the objective behind this project.  Few people will do this project - so you are someone special if you try. I say, give it a go!

Suggested school project: Make a Mandelbrot image tonight:  Get together with your school classmates or team of friends and put together a collection of the best images you can find.

## How to make your Mandelbrot image.

The developer is J R Oakley and you can read more about the development and the various versions of the computer program on his website here: http://www.mandel.org.uk/

When you run the program it will make images on your screen.

Save the images you create in a local directory, named for example: My_Documents/mandelbrot-images/

Now use your preferred image processing program, such as Microsoft paint.exe, to enlarge, shrink or otherwise edit and modify the image and then print it, send it to your friends, use it in your facebook, blogs, web site etc.

Someone has made a series of Mandlebrot images and strung them all together as frames, making a Mandelbrot video. This may be viewed in the YouTube video above. Click in the middle to play the Mandelbrot video.

 Mandelbrot Image - coloured waves. Black and white waves with three eddies. Ice crystals growing on glass ? Ice with coloured light light behind ? Same again but with colours altered slightly. The black growths are source of the Mandelbrot patterns. The result of using bright colours. . Change the scale and zoom in or zoom out. I wonder about making posters of this or greetings cards. Why ? Nice pattern, shame about the black blob ! Here comes the Mandelbrot UFO !
