Fractals and Fractal Geometry are something that takes a long time to look at and fully appreciate
Fractals are a product of geometry, a branch of mathematics.
The repetitious nature and complex detail found in most fractal geometry is such that it would really take a long time of close observation to fully appreciate this form of art or rather this form of scientific geometric design, based on mathematical and complex computer algorithms.
Fractals can be found in nature, such as the crystal formation of ice in the form of snow flakes or in the basic spiral shape of a sea shell and moreover in the many forms represented in nature.
When you observe a leaf, up close you can see the patterns that make up the shape of a particular leaf and if you look at it closer, through magnification, you will see more and more evidence of very complex structures. The farther inward you look at nature to the very tiny molecular level, you will see that the deeper you look, the more complex forms of patterns that are apparent to the eye.
Another interesting thing to look at are the molecular models that represent complex chemical structures, that provide insight into a particular combination of elements that make up a certain molecular chain or compound.
Most people use the molecular models in 3-D to illustrate the specifics of a given set of molecules that form in nature and other models that represent man-made molecular formations. The complexity of this form of illustration serves to convey information to well informed scientists, of the very nature and structure of molecular formation for the purpose of advancing in scientific discovery.
