We present a simple optical system for producing self-similar fractal patterns. The key component comprises three adjacent lenses, which form multiple images of a pattern displayed on a monitor. The images are recorded by a camera and displayed as the new pattern on the monitor. Iteration of this process results in an approximation to a self-similar fractal pattern which is independent of the starting image.
