!header Finite Subdivisions
!text b j This one isn’t too complicated! Draw a polygon and connect its center of mass to every vertex, splitting it into triangles. Do the same thing for every triangle, and repeat until you have a beautiful, crystal-like spiderweb. This is called barycentric subdivision, and similarly to the strange attractors applet, it’s only one kind of finite subdivision, but it’s one of the most picturesque.
