I love fractals.

A few weeks ago we were at the UMC Nijmegen for a CT scan (father-in-law; liver-cancer; luckily slow-growing and treatable) they had an exhibition of illustrations from Haeckel of microscopic organisms. It struck me at the time just how much those structures reminded me of fractals as well as how beautiful they are.

You can see some pictures here:

And a book:

Similarly, on visiting the Sagrada Familia one of my first thoughts was that it was like stepping inside a fractal.


Ah, Mediamatic! I did my internship there 20 years ago.
