A Never Ending Pattern

Fun repeats

by Fractal Foundation

A Fractal is a pattern that repeats itself over and over and over again, but at a different scale each time. Although it is a complex system, it is nothing more than repeating a simple process.


Fractals can be found in nature – trees, river networks, lightning bolts, blood vessels; and spiral patterns from the smallest seashells, to hurricanes and galaxies.


An example of this is the Mandelbrot Set, which is formed by repeating a simple calculation.


Simplicity leads to complexity. A fractal tells a story of the processes that created it.
