Fractals are the visual depictions of mathematical equations — the same equations, in fact, that describe natural phenomena such as crystal growth, galaxy formation, plant shapes, and weather patterns. A computer program assigns a color to each point in the image based on the answers to a chosen equation, which then results in cosmic or abstract fractal shapes. Dozens of variables are manipulated in order to create these fascinating images.
