To Frame or Not to Frame ...
It seems that the more talented the artist, the smaller the frame. Seriously. It seems that many of us go through a phase where we think "if we frame it, its art" followed by some truly amazing (and often ugly) frames. Then, as we get better at the art part, the frames diminish until we dispense with them altogether.
My three main problems with framing fractals are as follows:
- The frame can detract from the fractal
- Fractals made into "prints" are often framed after they are printed, so and "electronic" frame would need to be cropped anyway
- Framed stuff is useless as desktop wallpaper
Of course, there will always be the exception that proves the rule :)
Bad Frame (it makes me cringe, even now)
"Medium Frame" (aka how to destroy good artwork)
Very Small Frame
Prepared to admit this is one of mine
The Exception (hopefully)
