Artwork Inspired by Jupiter’s Great Red Spot

Artist Mik Petter has created a vibrant new piece of art based on JunoCam images of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (GRS). The piece makes use of fractals, which are recursive mathematical creations; increasingly complex patterns that are similar to each other, yet never exactly the same.

“The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as it is to discover new ways of thinking about them.”

William Lawrence Bragg – “Beyond Reductionism”

The result is a portrait of the GRS that momentarily stuns the eye, inviting the viewer to take a new look at one of the Solar System’s most prominent natural displays. We’ve all seen the GRS, but never like this. Also it may be timed to the International Women’s Day.
