Fractal is a nature artwork


Yeah, the first real application we could found for fractal is simply the nature. A lot’s of things around us are fractals.

Look at this Romanesco (a cross between broccoli and Cauliflower, which accentuates the great fractal spiral patterns on the top. Tastes a-ok too)

Fractal Broccoli II by aleksandarrodic


This was one of the first discovered “natural” fractal.
But a lot’s of naturals fractals had been discover since,

"Sea shell animals" could develop a fractal pattern too :

Quaternion Brocade by roddh


Even Leafs or thunderstrikes are fractals.



As an example, this guy has been hit by a thunder strike which leave him forever a fractal on his back (actually this is the spread of the thunder :meow:)




Even at home YOU could create a natural fractal with something you all have near you.

Take a CD, put it in the microwave for 3-4 sec MAX and you will see the CD surface starting making sparkles then it will stop (it make sparkle for max : 1sec, that's really quick) when there's no more sparkles STOP THE MICROWAVE !

Please be carefull when trying this experience, we will be in no way guilty of any damage that may come with this experience !

When you will put it off you will see another "natural" fractal like this one :



So now take a closer look around you and you will found a thousand of others wonderful natural fractal.

ooo! Nifty!
I think, however, that I will avoid the microwaving a CD trick to find fractals.
