I had all but given up on this one, then the next thing I tried produced a variation on a torn square fractal Here are traditional versions of the torn square fractal:

4096 cells

Here's a nice pattern I created while developing the torn square. It's two-tone but, unfortunately, you can't see it at this magnification. 4096 cells

Here's a close up of the bottom right

Black and white allows you to see some interesting patterns

Here's the same pattern, but with the components attached asymmetrically -- which makes the whole thing a bit crazy

Here's the genome for the torn square. I'd like to get the opening in the center to run vertically as well as horizontally, but haven't managed to do it yet.

You'll have to create a substrate with the cell limit where you want the genome to stop. You'll have to adjust viscosity: eg, start low, then none, then very low.

This is a partial step in the right direction. The center is open, but now I've lost the side tears I had before. It' pretty cool though...

Here's four of them put together to make a fancy pattern:

Four of the original torn square I posted also creates an interesting pattern:

### Re: Torn square fractal

In terms of creating a pattern similar to the traditional torn square, this variation is a bit better -- but I think I like the variation in the first post more

### Re: Torn square fractal

I created a slightly different and relatively good variation on the traditional torn square.
