The Koch Snowflake is a plane fractal with finite area and infinite perimeter. Moving the radial locator continuously (fictitiously) inflates the fractal between its fourth iterations of negative and positive form. The shaded disk segment represents the ratio of an enclosing area to the area of the bounding circle.
