Tom Beddard is a mathematician and an artist who works with fractals, a both mathematical and natural phenomena that works by repeating endlessly the same geometrical figure in different dimensions like a perpetuum mobile.

The fractals are used to explain the structure of a snowflake, how the Universe expanded, but also to generate very complicated digital structures like the strikingly beautiful ones created by the Scottish scientist Tom Beddard.

The project Faberge Fractals, referring to the famous eggs made by the Russian artist Faberge in the late 19th century, is comprised by a series of 3D geometrical figures which were created by using mathematical formulas.
