Synthetic images of fractal landscapes have moved beyond science to enter the domain of “art for art's sake.” We discuss some of the ramifications of this artistic aspect: improving the fractal description of terrains, adding fractal textures to surfaces, and using parallel computers. We illuminate the peculiarities of attaining artistic self-expression in representational imagery purely through formal logic, and discuss its import.
