Over the course of the this past year I discovered Fractals. I had never heard of them but I definitely was affected by them. If you are like me and don’t know what this is, here is a simple and brief rundown. A fractal is a shape that has a consistent repeated pattern at multiple scales. We see these patterns in nature in various things like a pine tree that has branches then produces smaller branches that then produce smaller pine needles. There are also spiral formations we see in many things like the nautilus shell or the formation of stars, even a sunflower. The sunflower grows at an angle called the golden angle which creates the spiral formation in the center of the sunflower. There is a whole geometric system mathematicians have been able to attribute to this design. Why Am I telling you about this?
Studies have shown, That exposure to fractal patterns in nature reduce people’s stress levels of up to 60%. Research indicates certain types of artwork that deliberately have these patterns can also produce a relaxing effect, as does simple scenes of nature.
I experienced this when I was out on the boat with my father and uncle or in my own little boat in the local ponds and rivers. I never knew how to put what I experienced into words. Having artwork like this in doctors offices, financial institutions, law offices and more create a calming, stress free environment.
