“Form alone, even though totally abstract and geometrical, has a power of inner suggestion. A triangle has a spiritual value of its own. In connection with other forms, this value may be somewhat modified, but remains in quality the same. The case is similar with a circle, a square, or any conceivable geometrical figure…we have here a subjective substance in an objective shell.
The mutual influence of form and colour now becomes clear. A yellow triangle, a blue circle, a green square, or a green triangle, a yellow circle, a blue square – all these are different and have different spiritual values.”
– Wassily Kandinsky, “Concerning the Spiritual in Art,” The Language of Form and Colour. Dover Publications, New York, 1977.
Waclaw Sierpinski, 1915
The Sierpinski Triangle is a fractal construction: the image is self-similar and therefore similar at any point, by magnification or reduction, regardless of scale.
