This video is an experiment with 3d procedural modeling techniques. It represents fractal vegetable Romanesco Broccoli. The flower represents one of the most simple and beautiful natural 3D fractal forms. Here is a technical breakdown: http://aleksandarrodic.com/renderman/... And a high-resolution still: http://aleksandarrodic.com/?page=broc... For this project I have chosen my favorite fractal vegetable Romanesco Broccoli (Brassica oleracea). The flower is composed of spirally arranged segments which are identical copies of the whole flower. The copying process continues ad infinitum as a 3D fractal form. The mathematical beauty and simplicity of this flower never stops to amaze me. Creating this amount of geometry without using Maya or any tool other than Cutter was challenging. However, the only problem was finding the right values for one transformation and repeat it many times.

My special thanks goes to prof. Malcolm Kesson at Savannah College of Art and Design
