3D Fractal Animation

This animation navigates inside a 3D fractal iterative formula, a variation on the Sierpinski triangle. I was always interested by Fractal geometries - self repeating structures with an infinite amount of details.

The fractal dimension is fascinating, it questions the geometry of our own universe. I rendered a 90 seconds sequence, but this animation could actually last forever. This geometrical structure has, by essence, no limits.

This sequence is dedicated to the late Benoit Mandelbrot (1924-2010), the visionary mathematician who explored the fractal geometry of nature. His autobiography The Fractalist: Memoir of a Scientific Maverick is a captivating introduction to this specific kind of geometry.
