Octahedron fractal graph

  • White

    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.


This is a graph embedded in 3-dimensional space as a subset of an "octahedral lattice", which is related to the tessellation of space using octahedra and tetrahedra. The graph has a fractal structure, formed by a process of repeated substitution. Each vertex at each step of the construction is degree 4, and is replaced at the next step by 6 vertices arranged in an octahedron, with certain choices of edges connecting them to each other. Each edge is replaced at the next step by 2 parallel edges. We begin the construction with the first step being the edges of an octahedron, and this is the result at the fourth step.
