Apollonian Blossom by eriban Apollonian Blossom by eriban
My second fractal created using Apophysis. For now I am still focussing on learning the basics, including the underlying maths.

Details
This fractal is based on the Apollonian Gasket, which can be generated via an IFS where the key mechanism is circle inversion. This inversion can be reproduced in Apophysis using the spherical variation. This fractal is a pimped version of the basic gasket. It fills some of the empty areas with further copies of the fractal.

Exercise for insomniacs
Count the number of circles.

I created an animation that shows how the fractal is constructed from the Apollonian Gasket.

Thanks. I still have much to learn in Apophysis, but I was pleased with the outcome of this experiment. The nice thing about fractals is that even basic ones can show a lot of interesting details.
