Fractals

  • Photographer
    Patrick Desgraupes

Beyond the undeniable fascination they exert on us, the Fractals have many repercussions on the analysis that we can have of the world around us. Found in 1970, the discovery has revolutionized the world of science, economics and philosophy. By recreating in photographs some of the most famous fractals (Sierpinks, Apollonius, and Von Koch) with bottles and glasses of wine, I wanted to show that these "invariant structures with a change of scale" are like human intelligence.
