Nicholas Rougeux made this fabulous Menger sponge fractal out of mini Post-its, which he swears by for erecting fractals:
Each Post-It was torn into 16 equal squares, then folded into units and assembled into the sponge.
Post-its offer surprisingly structural durability and are easy to get in large quantities making them ideal for assembling structures like these.

In "Surface Detail," an unflowering fractal surface dances and writhes hypnotically for 3:10, each moment more hypnotic than the last. The artist is called subBlue.
