Fabergé Fractals by Tom Beddard
Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist and web developer Tom Beddard, has produced a number of intriguing geometric forms he refers to as Fabergé Fractals. Beddard’s creations boast brilliant and intricate design patterns and uses a formulaic method to create his digitally rendered three-dimensional models.
“The 3D fractals are generated by iterative formulas whereby the output of one iteration forms the input for the next. The formulas effectively fold, scale, rotate or flip space. They are truly fractal in the fact that more and more detail can be revealed the closer to the surface you travel. The fascinating aspect is where combinations of parameters can combine to create structural ‘resonances’ of extraordinary detail and beauty—sometimes naturally organic and other times perfectly geometric. But then like a chaotic system it can completely disappear with the smallest perturbation.”
