A fractal called "Fan Room" by artist 12GO

Smashing Magazine has posted a very cool gallery of fractals - a.k.a. nerd art of the highest order. That's nothing unusual, but these are in black and white and they are pretty stunning. Normally color is a huge part of the fractal experience, but stripping away that aspect of the work really adds some clarity to these images.

But if you just can't live without your precious color, ad maybe want a trippier motion experience, check out this zooming, scrolling video that descends into a fractal's innards.

Or better yet, check this out and see if you can make something yourself - color optional.
