Abstract

This thesis explores the construction of shapes and, in particular, fractal-type shapes as fixed points of contractive iterated function systems as discussed in Michael Barnsley's 1988 book ``Fractals Everywhere." The purpose of the thesis is to serve as a resource for an undergraduate-level introduction to the beauty and core ideas of fractal geometry, especially with regard to visualizations of basic concepts and algorithms.
