These beguiling geometric figures are the work of Scotland-based laser physicist-turned-artist Tom Beddard, aka subBlue. Although it looks like you could reach out and touch them, they’re three-dimensional models digitally rendered by Beddard’s formulaic methods. Beddard calls them Fabergé Fractals because their incredibly intricate and dazzling patterns are ornate like jewel-encrusted Fabergé eggs.

Beddard describes his work:

"The 3D fractals are generated by iterative formulas whereby the output of one iteration forms the input for the next. The formulas effectively fold, scale, rotate or flip space. They are truly fractal in the fact that more and more detail can be revealed the closer to the surface you travel.

"The fascinating aspect is where combinations of parameters can combine to create structural ‘resonances’ of extraordinary detail and beauty—sometimes naturally organic and other times perfectly geometric. But then like a chaotic system it can completely disappear with the smallest perturbation."
