A fractal tiling of both octahedral and icosahedral symmetry
I want to show you a fractal tiling which can be seen as a decoration of a sphere with octahedral symmetry and at the same time as another decoration of a sphere with icosahedral symmetry. It arises as the limit … Continue reading

Color symmetry using the length scale of the inflated lattice
I have shown some images with 2color symmetry upon rotation shown in “images of 10fold rotational …“. But the fast color changes they hacked them into small pieces. We can get better images if we use a color changing function with … Continue reading
images with 5fold symmetry and color change indicating selfsimilarity
And now for more images with 5fold rotational symmetry and color change derived from selfsimilarity as discussed in “selfsimilarity and color modification“. Zoom in to see the molten watch faces in this image: Here I used the portrait of a … Continue reading
Selfsimilarity and color modification
The Penrose tiling is selfsimilar as many other quasiperiodic tilings. It matches a copy of itself inflated by the golden ratio τ=(1+√5)/2≅1.618, see “Penrose tiling tied up in ribbons“. Noting that our quasiperiodic designs of 5fold symmetry are closely related to … Continue reading
Coloring the Julia set
The Julia set of a function f(z) in the complex plane has all points z that remain finite upon iterations of the function. In the last posts I have used expanding functions to get fractal images from iteration, as discussed … Continue reading

Hints for experiments
You can modify the code of the last post “selfsimilar fractals … – the code” to produce new images. A large value for the imaginary part of the constant c often destroys the mirror symmetry and gives a more dynamic … Continue reading

selfsimilar fractals with rotational symmetry from function iteration
I was looking at my posts of march 2013 on complex function iterations, see in particular “fractal surprise from complex function iteration” and “selfsimilar images from iterated mappings of the plane“, and I got some new ideas I want to … Continue reading
