3D Fractals

Last week I met Tom Beddard, a physicist turned web developer turned artist (and friendly guy). He creates fractals — those recursive shapes that infinitely repeat at every scale. They’re based on simple math, but they can create some amazing images.

Says Beddard: “I don’t seek any new mathematical insight into the resulting structures, it’s a purely aesthetic pursuit to scratch a creative itch. Part of the fascination with fractal exploration is when … amazing and completely unexpected structures can pop out and surprise you.”

Some of the fractals look like Gothic architecture. Some of them look like alien seed pods. All of them are mesmerizing. You can see lots more on Beddard’s flickr page. You can actually fly through the fractals and see them morphing in these videos. And now, thanks to a new app called Frax that Beddard helped develop, you can make fractals of your very own.

 A 110 million-year-old fossil of Cleoniceras ammonite, found in Madagascar. Ammonites are extinct cephalopods that lived in shells. Their closest modern relatives are nautiluses, octopi, squid, and cuttlefish. Like the nautilus, ammonites gradually added onto their shell to accommodate their increasing body mass. As they extended the shell they built a wall behind them, closing up the now too-narrow portion of the shell as they moved into the larger portion of the spiral.

Unlike the nautilus, the morphology of the tissue wall ammonites built between the chambers is not just a smooth curved wall. Instead it has a bizarrely complex 3-dimensional fractal shape. These are called “suture patterns” and mark the intersection of the septum walls with the shell. Scientists can’t agree why these walls are so complexly furrowed or even how they formed.
