Benoît Mandelbrot

That's kind of depressing news. More depressing was the fact that the people I was with when I heard this had never heard of mandelbrot :(

Rest in peace, in an ever lasting zoom.

When the guys and gals from [d]vision were preparing the Realtime Generation exhibition in Vienna, they had plans to invite Mandelbrot as a special guest to deliver a speech. In the end it didn't work out though. Now it won't ever happen.

I met Monsieur Mandelbrot a few times (even gave a lecture with him!); he was smart as hell, and had a whole life of stories to tell. He was very conscious of his relevance for maths and philosophy. Besides, his work influenced (and will continue doing) a massive amount of people, from professional mathematicians to computer hobbyist kids as we are/were. In fact, I can tell that my life branched towards computer graphics, without further possibility of recovery, when I rendered my first Mandelbrot set when I was a boy. So was for many other demosceners around here. Thanks so much Benoit Mandelbrot!

In memoriam Mandelbrot there will be a 'fractal party' in Vienna's Metalab tomorrow!

For appropriate visuals I'm looking for old/newskool demos/intros with fractal(-like) effects.

If it was your saying, which productions shall be selected?

Some quick suggestions for myself:
Noumenon by Andromeda
Stargazer by Orb & Andromeda
Rex polyhedron by the silents
Antifact by Limp Ninja (if I can capture it)
Mandelkern by Teraflop
Untraceable by tbc
Mandelduck by b00lduck
Futurism by Still
