So, the koch curve is hard! Some issues so far:
- Diagonal lines are hard.
- Adding thickness is variable.
- Resolution is hard.
- I think I need to figure out how to properly use recursion.
I’m starting to get pretty good with Python3, which is a plus. I’ve been working with it in my capstone project, as well as my current research position. My work with fractals has definitely helped me wrap my head around classes and objects. A step up from CSCI 1320, lol.
Turns out, converting 4D numpy arrays to .mp4s is extremely simple. My next step will be to output the video dynamically.
I think my highest priority in this project will be properly aligning frame transitions to the beat / key signature of a song. If anything was off, I’m not sure if I would even want to present it. It sounds like Adobe After Effects may be a good thing to pursue.

Some alternatives for this project would be taking a more colorful, psychedelic route. I’ve found a few pretty complex fractal generations on youtube with open source code available! Below are a few that I’m considering.
The above videos could definitely prove to be some alternative aesthetics that could play into my same idea. We’ll see how everything turns out!
