This is an old experiment, about creating fractal structures with reflections. The most know example of this is the Wada Basins, I post an exemple of this in this gallery on october 2010.
On this experiment I tried to find what is the minimum of reflective objects necessary to produce a fractal structure; I think is 3 and 2 of them need to by curve.
The title SCP is for sphere, cylinder and plane, put a cylinder on its side on a plane with a sphere touching it check the spot were the sphere touch the cylinder and you get this image, the inverted V shape have many characteristics of fractal.
This image was created in Bryce the 3 objects are texture with a total reflective shader, the structure need tho have something to reflect in this case the sky is the image reflected.
In 3d softwares you can adjust numerically the deepness of reflection, this adjustment have in this image the same effect as iteration number.
Thanks for viewing.
