Fractals are fascinating. Watch this video by former laser physicist Tom Beddard, who now calls himself "subBlue", and I think you'll understand the attraction. subBlue lives and works in Scotland.
You'll want to visit Science Alert and My Modern Met to see images of subBlue's extraordinary and gorgeous three-dimensional Faberge Fractals.
