I have woven a parachute out of everything broken.
~William Stafford
These images are based on a new kind of math called fractal geometry, developed in the 1970s and 80s by French mathematician BenoƮt Mandelbrot, and are created by repeating simple patterns billions and trillions of times. Until today's fast computers became widely available, only mathematicians had seen fractals; now everyone can enjoy their intricacy and beauty.
