Fractals are math-based patterns that look similar both from distance and up close. They can either repeat at the same scale or different scales, and the definition of fractals has been stretched largely due to popular culture and fractal-modeling tools that allow users to create geometric patterns or time-based patterns that resemble fractals, regardless of meeting all the formal criteria.

Fractals are especially popular in computer-generated art, as they are capable of creating interesting and colorful artworks, as well as in terrain and landscape generation in programs like e-on Vue.

Below, you’ll find a showcase of some especially clever and artistic fractal creations:
