This unique picture has been made by writing original C++ code on a computer where the colours were chosen with the same creativity and freedom that an artist uses when confronted with a blank canvas. It is of a fractal nature created with a directed graph iterated function system. Roughly speaking it's reasonable to expect a fractal to have some sort of detailed approximate self-similarity on scaling. This means that its shape is repeated on ever smaller scales as we zoom into it. Self-similarity on scaling is present in many natural forms around us. For instance cauliflowers, trees, mountains, coastlines, lightning and clouds are just a few examples of some fractal shapes that occur in nature. The artist's recent mathematical research provided the motivation to create this picture.
