RIP Benoit Mandelbrot

Benoit Mandelbrot died last week, aged 85. His groundbreaking work with fractals needs no introduction in this community, and I don't feel qualified to compose a suitable eulogy for the man. I'll resort to linking to one of many obituaries, and although it's all but impossible to pick out a definitive visual work, I figured I can't go far wrong with something featuring Jonathan Coulton's song (warning: there's a cuss-word in the chorus)



Does anyone else have any favourite Mandelbrot-inspired images or videos?
