Fractal Heart

'fractal heart', Eric Baird 2011

This is a three-dimensional fractal network based on Golden Section ratios. It's based on the shapes in Figures 8-5 and 32-4 (pp. 59, 154 and bc) of the fractals book.
The shape reminded me of those anatomical models where they inject an organ with latex and then dissolve away the tissue to leave a network of blood vessels and capillaries. The texture and bright red colour also reminded me of that guy who makes sculptures out of frozen blood.
