Blue Wash

This image is a random fractal that is created by continually dividing a rectangle into two parts.


Basic Description

This image is considered a random fractal, because the behavior and coloring of this image is determined randomly. In essence, the rule governing the fractal is:

  1. Take a rectangle
  1. Divide the rectangle in half (horizontally or vertically) at a random location
  1. Adjust the brightness of each half of the rectangle by a random factor
  1. Repeat for all current rectangles in the image
