The Art of Random Fractals
Douglas Dunham and John Shier: The Art of Random Fractals. In: Bridges 2014. Pages 79–86
We describe a mathematically based algorithm that can fill a spatial region with an infinite sequence of randomly placed and progressively smaller shapes, which may be transformed copies of one motif or several motifs. This flexible algorithm can be used to produce a variety of aesthetically pleasing fractal patterns, of which we show a number of examples.
