The image represents the behavior of mathematical feedback loops, and more particularly the iteration of a complex function. The figure is our rendition of a visually interesting quartic variant of a Ushiki Phoenix Julia set. As with other fractals, the image exhibits a wealth of detail upon successive magnifications. The image ‘Infinite Curl 7’ has been made in collaboration with Dr. Clifford Pickover, the author of more than thirty books about mathematics, art, and science.

The implicit decagon constituted of five smaller decagons expresses tenfold and fivefold rotational symmetry. The image where golden heart-like shapes are exposed shows self-similarity, the richness of relations between the decagons, pentagonal stars, Penrose rhombs, kites and darts with the golden ratio used several times as a scale factor.

"Matjuska Teja Krasek holds a B.A. degree in painting from Arthouse - College for Visual Arts, Ljubljana, and is a freelance artist who lives and works in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Her theoretical as well as practical work is especially focused on symmetry as a linking concept between art and science, on filling a plane with geometrical shapes, especially those constituting Penrose tilings. The author's interest is focused on the shapes' inner relations, on the relations between the shapes and between them and a regular pentagon. Krasek’s artworks also illustrate certain properties as golden mean relations, selfsimilarity, ten- and fivefold symmetry, Fibonacci sequence, inward infinity and perceptual ambiguity. She employs contemporary computer technology as well as classical painting techniques."
