I often explore abandoned buildings for fun, profit and inspiration: However, these days to get a unique pitch of inspiration, instead of just breaking into abandoned castles, or doing drugs like those "cool kids" from DARE commercials...

If you have no idea what Mandelbulb is, go here: http://mandelbulb.com/about/ The most interesting thing about Mandelbulb is that the 3d fractals it produces are literally INFINITE - the 3d space spirals on forever, occasionally folding into itself like a mobius loop. This effect can create great
