The chaotic dynamics of light fields formed by a distributed nonlinear optical system with time-delayed feedback and diffraction is studied numerically. In a certain range of system parameters, these fields are found to have isotropic spectra of spatial fluctuations decreasing smoothly with the increasing spatial frequency. The possibility of using these systems as generators of artificial optical turbulence is discussed.
