Fractals are objects in which the same patterns occur again and again at different scales and sizes.
In nature, such structures can be found everywhere. Trees, rivers, coastlines, mountains, clouds, seashells, hurricanes are all fractal systems.
The term "fractal" was coined by mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot in 1975. He was one of the first to use computer graphics to create and display fractal geometric images.
Driven by the continuously growing computer power over the last 40 years, the first simple Mandelbrot graphics have evolved into highly complex worlds with an enormous level of detail and depth.
All visuals of The Mirage Project are based on the fundamental concept of fractals.
