Fractal Work by Mary Stebbins Taitt

Fractal computer art is an art form.. let there be no mistake about that.
Yes, the image is created and exists (until printed) as electrons dancing in a box and on a screen, frozen in that dance, the dance itself determined ALMOST by random chance. Fractal geometries are based on the mathematics of nature herself and are interesting in that, like nature, the patterns persist at every scale, small to large, and therefore are not random and chaotic but instead random and yet organized and, as noted here, extremely beautiful to the human eye and brain.
God works through art such as this, make no mistake about THAT, either!

I think it's art, too, but I feel more "ownership over it IF I adapt it or change it in some way.

With fractal art, it seems as though the artist's intervention is to select the root intentions and the computer program elaborates on the pattern set. Am I right or wrong on that?
