Formerly coined mathematical "monsters," fractals are a compelling concept that dates back hundreds of years. The idea that a shape or set of information could be infinitely deconstructed into multiple copies of itself is both confusing and brilliant.

The purpose of this study is to explore the path of development of fractal geometry and demonstrate its widely-ignored usefulness.
