A fractal is an extremely complex geometric form consisting of smaller copies of itself repeating across (theoretically) infinitely smaller scales, the whole a development of a disarmingly simple mathematical formula. When a fractal is fed into a computer that is also programmed to cycle the colours of the visual spectrum through the pattern, the result can be pleasantly trippy.
