Three-dimensional Fractals:

Using the solution of folding paper to form fractals I managed to both create them accurately despite being created by human hands, and find a method of creating fractals that a computer couldn’t SAM_1513mimic. I managed to start with the basics of paper folding, creating patterns through the creases, parallels to each other, before I decided to create a ball. Essencially I went from forming a letter to writing a whole novel. However the idea of a complete sphere appealed to me, It fit perfectly with the project, taking a plane of a flat piece of paper and turning it into a three-dimensional object by itself. But despite my efforts it did not end up as a sphere more an incomplete tunnel, albeit one with rather good waterbomb patterns on.SAM_1525

I then decided to try other methods using paper, namely due to its fallibility, cheapness in replacing and versitility. I created a Sierpinski triangle SAM_1521and a fractal square card,SAM_1511 both of which involve cutting the paper by way of iterate measurements according to the size of the paper and the specfic pattern. I then started to create three-dimensional shapes by cutting them from paper and constructing them through folding and attaching together, this produced a series of triangles, connected through different ways to experiment with the most appropriate media to hold them together. This method allowed for rSAM_1526eproducability just like the compSAM_1530uter generated fracals.
