    Fractal Graph 4 is another print in a series exploring fractals produced by iterated substitution. These make interesting craggy shapes, which are easy to see into because of all of the holes, but are also much stronger than tree-like fractal shapes.

    very, very cool looking.

    the explination kinda makes my head hurt though. :D i love math, but at the same time, ow, ow ow.

    Nicely done; did you build this by script?

    I updated the video (and updated the link above) to show the steps of the construction. Here is a link to the part of the video with the steps.

    @masked: For this one, most of it is by hand actually. I made the graph from many straight lines. This isn't so hard to do, using the substitution rules, scaling, rotating and reflecting. Then I have a script that takes a collection of straight lines, and makes a mesh of square tubes around the lines.
