Aperiodvent, Day 12: ASCII fractal drawing

ASCII MandelbrotEver wondered whether ASCII Art could be used to create images of fractals? Well, wonder no longer – today’s advent treat is Robert Munafo’s website containing ASCII art of successive zooms of the Mandelbrot Set, centred around the Feigenbaum point. And it’s magnificent.

This is part of the Aperiodical Advent Calendar. We’ll be posting a new surprise for you each morning until Christmas!
