Had Nature shadowed there, by putting forth,

Blossfeldt Fractals is a dynamic composition of plant forms, based on photographs by Karl Blossfeldt, generated through algorithms similar to Lindenmayer System.
Photographs by Karl Blossfeldt are both resource and inspiration in my project. I first scanned the photos and then manually edit and dissect the different plant elements.
Then I create a custom software to import these images and tag the points of interest in them. I mark points where stems or leaves or flowers may grow, specify the magnitude and direction of each point, and classify each image by its shape and texture.
