Well Bred Fractals by Steve Lawrence
What Are Fractals?
A fractal is a never-ending pattern. Fractals
are infinitely complex patterns that are self-
similar across different scales. They are
created by repeating a simple process over
and over in an ongoing feedback loop.
Driven by repetition, fractals are images of
dynamic systems - the pictures of Chaos.
Geometrically, they exist in between our
Fractal patterns are extremely familiar
nature is full of them! For instance: trees,
rivers, coastlines, mountains, clouds,
seashells, hurricanes, etc. Abstract fractals
- such as the Mandelbrot Set - can be
generated by a computer calculating a
simple equation, over and over.
