3D Rendered Fractals

Artist Tom Beddard meticulously rendered 3D fractals shown below.  We can’t tell whether they’re real, imaginary, or well, in the matrix…so why should you and why does it matter?  via butdoesitfloat:

…and from Beddard himself:

I have a fascination with the aesthetics of detail and complexity that is the result of simple mathematical or algorithmic processes. For me the creative process is writing my own software and scripts to explore the resulting output in an interactive manner. The best outcomes are often the least expected!
