Famous Fractals: Why is the Sierpinski Tetrahedron 2D?


Introduction

This is a little program I wrote together with my friend Benjamin. Its purpose is to visualize the two-dimensional nature of the famous Sierpinski Tetrahedron by creating one by repeatedly folding a two-dimensional plane.
It was written in Java and uses OpenGL for graphics.
