Barnsley Fern in Processing

Simon used an algorithm that applies transformations randomly, with some transformations more likely to be picked. The result is a stunning fern leaf pattern. Amazing how such beauty can be born from randomness. Simon’s code on GitHub: https://github.com/simon-tiger/barnsley_fern

 

Inspired by a math video on Numberphile about Chaos Game.
