Kerri's House of Fractals at Zazzle

I dunno about you but I have a fascination with the abstract. I love artwork that takes on a life of its own... artwork that continuously makes you ponder what it is. Fractals are beautiful this way. At Kerri's House of Fractals, you will discover a new dimension of art. Find amazing one-of-a-kind Fractal artwork on keychains, binders, necklaces, mousepads, iPhone/iPad/iPod cases and so much more!

What is Fractal art? 

Fractals are fragmented geometric shapes that can be split into parts, each of which is usually a reduced-size copy of the whole, a property called self-similarity. The idea of Fractals go back to the 17th century and mathematically rigorous treatment of fractals can be traced back to functions studied by Karl Weierstrass, Georg Cantor and Felix Hausdorff a century later in studying functions. The term fractal, however, was coined by BenoĆ®t Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin word fractus meaning 'broken' or 'fractured'While fractals are a mathematical construct, they are also found in nature, which has led to their inclusion in artwork
