Field: Fractals
Image Created By: Dan Kuzmenka
Website: Mathematical Imagery


Mateko uses different color palettes than image designer Dan Kuzmenka's usual earth tones. He uses fractals to express a spiral without showing the same shape over again.

Basic Description

Mateko is a word invented by its author, who maintains a personal challenge to find new ways of expressing spirals as the most important fractal icons without showing the same shape time and time again. For this image he experimented with different color palettes and ways to combine them before the colors we now see appeared; these colors are unusual for Dan Kuzmenka, who usually uses warmer colors and earth tones.
