Former laser physicist Tom Beddard has turned his hand to creating incredible pieces of art that celebrate the beauty and intricacy of fractals.
A mathematical concept and natural phenomenon, fractals create never-ending patterns. These repeating patterns display at every scale – known as a self-similar pattern – starting off simple before growing progressively more complex. At their inception, they were based on pure mathematics, but now their applications are seen in physics, chemistry, earth and geological sciences, engineering, and transport physics.
