In the CHANL Scientific Art competition, this image was entered as
Never Neverland: Cellular Architecture
with the following description:
This work was created with a popular (public domain) fractal software program named Apophysis, which generates so-called IFS fractal flames. IFS stands for Iterated Function System. Fractal patterns often resemble structures in nature, and here we can see similarities to cell structures such as the cell nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, golgi apparatus, mitochondria, lysosomes and water vacuoles. Alternatively, as the title suggests, this could be the aerial view seen by the children of the Darling family when they flew to the home island of Peter Pan, where one never grows old.
