Visit Nikki Graziano’s site.

Nikki says she is observing the “mathematics within our universe”; a “quick correspondence between the disciplines of art and mathematics”, offering images which are a “whisper or a glance”.

Go here to see her work.

Nikki and many others are interested in natural world fractals; patterns seen in cauliflowers, clouds, snowflakes and all kinds of landforms and landscapes.

What’s a fractal?

Wikipedia says A fractal is “a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole,”[1] a property called self-similarity.

Are nature’s visually recurring patterns good for us, in the same way that harmonies and patterns within great music are calming, inspiring and evocative? What do you think? What do you feel?

Did you know that acupuncturists assess patterns of disharmony which cause illness and affect our well-being? Acupuncture, Aromatherapy and Reiki restore us to our natural patterns of harmony.

This image above is not one of Ms Graziano’s, so be sure you take a look at hers.

Go here, and take the 30 second disharmony test.
