Droste Effect

In honor of Benoît B. Mandelbrot (recently deceased) and M.C. Escher

Every hear of a Droste effect? It was first used publicly on Droste Cocoa Power tins. The technically specific and correct use of this effect is to have a copy of an image in the image in a place you would expect to see an image of the image (mirror in mirror). In a more generic way, it is a recursive image format. Adobe Photoshop’s experimental team’s Droste filter uses the recursive definition but also incorporates the other recursive properties of linear curvature and polar rotation. In layman terms it is a filter that blends Droste with Mandelbrot and Escher.
