Beyond the undeniable fascination they exert on us, the Fractals have many repercussions on the analysis that we can have of the world around us. If the beginnings of fractal geometry begin in the 3rd century BC, it is in the 1970s that Mandelbrot gives it the name of fractal. And this discovery will revolutionize the world of science, economics and philosophy.
Like geometry, the winemaking has evolved enormously during these millennia according to the know-how of the Wine growers.
By recreating in photographs some of the most famous fractals (Sierpinks, Apollonius, and Von Koch) with wine bottles, I wanted to show that these "invariant structures with a change of scale" are like human intelligence.
