The Art of Fractal Randomness

I am currently re-reading ” The Black Swan” by Nassim Nicholas Taleb and it is even more rewarding than the first read.
Quite a lot of passages made more sense now because of the financial mess in countries around the world. I also discovered that Taleb was a disciple of Benoit Mandelbrot the father of Fractal Mathematics.

Mandelbrot’s work apart from redefining our perceptions of the physical matter also had tremendous influence on arts,graphic design,music etc.

Fractals are defined as  “a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole,” – a property called self-similarity (Wikipedia).

Watch this video to get an idea of what Fractals are:

And I decided to experiment and create my own fractals and add a few quotes of Taleb on those.
