Expert Answer:

A fractal is a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is a reduced-size copy of the whole. There are several examples of fractals, which are defined as portraying exact self-similarity, quasi self-similarity, or statistical self-similarity. They are found in nature, which has led to their inclusion in artwork. They are useful in medicine, soil mechanics, seismology, and technical analysis etc.
