What are fractal flames?

Fractal flames are a type of digital art created by constructing geometric patterns and manipulating “variations” by adding or changing them. Fractals are a great way to investigate abstract concepts like infinity and self-similarity since they can have an infinite number of details. They’re awe-inspiring, enticing, and mysterious.

It’s a never-ending loop of self-replicating self-similar patterns. Fractal elements can be found in natural phenomena such as plant cells, snowflakes, and sand grains.
