A friend I met via Mardi Gras reminded me of my early love of fractals. She worked at IBM during the heydey, so got exposed to a lot of the stuff there. (Benoit Mandelbrot is an IBM Fellow.)
So I was flipping through The Beauty of Fractals— when I should have been doing something else, of course — and saw this on one of the pages.
After spending about ten minutes performing the mathematical equivalent of sounding out the syllables, I figured out how they got it, and made my own version.
It’s the Mandelbrot set, believe it or not, but turned inside out ( z → 1/z ), rotated, and colored in an interesting way. (Called Binary Decomposition.)
It’s also subsampled 8 times along each axis for a nice level of anti-aliasing.
