Helga Von Koch's snowflake curve is the limit curve of an infinite sequence of polygonal curves. The Koch snowflake is an example of a fractal curve with finite area and infinite length. Change the angle of the updating rule to make interesting patterns. Typically the starting curve is a triangle or line, but any polygon will work.
