Fabergé Fractals: ornate art objects

These ornate art objects, “Fabergé Fractals” as they’re called, are the work of Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist and web developer Tom Beddard, who also goes by the name SubBlue. The art-meets-science maven used a formulaic method to yield his three-dimensional models, combining the 19th century decorative overload that is Fabergé with fractals’ self-perpetuating, never-ending patterns, self-similar at every scale.

Beddard explained his methodology to MyModernMet: “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.
