Fractals are mathematically defined objects with self-similar detail on every level of magnification. In the past, scientists have studied their mathematical properties by rendering them on computers. Recently, artists have discovered the possibilities of rendering fractals in beautiful ways in order to create works of art. This project provides some background on several kinds of fractals, explains how they are rendered, and shows that fractal art is a newly emerging artistic paradigm.
