Thanks for sharing this - will look for Discover at our schools library.
Also will search out the 99 issue. Fascinating that what looks like random
paint drips should be
fractals - was he concience of fractals or by protraying nature like fern
leaves did
he achieve the fractal state. I have only seen random drips in the art books
- might
need to see one in real life for the fractal experience. Saw a film many
years ago
on Pollock and it didn't look as though he was planning any of his drips.
Always
wanted to throw paint from the roof onto a large canvas Pollock style but now
am
afraid of heights!!!! Lol Roberta
