It should be a surprise to no-one that I love fractals. Intricately dense three-dimensional landscapes representative of complex mathematical patterns that permeate throughout all scales of the natural (and unnatural) world, from the grid-based construction of contemporary cities to the veins of a tree-leaf.
VFX artist Julius Horsthuis has just released a compilation of his fractal animations over the past year; combining over 20 clips amounting to just over an hour of footage into one 4-minute visual espresso shot of inspiration. He's also currently got an interactive 360-degree project called "Foreign Nature" coming out sometime next year for the Oculus Rift. Check out more of his work here. Great job Julius, see you in the new year!
