Box fractals refer to the various iterated fractals created by a square or rectangular grid. Its pattern is made up of repetitive boxes or square and the absent squares. 

To visualize clearly, imagine one square which you divide into nine tiny squares on a three by three grid. Instead of just creating lines on the square, you alternate the squares that have color and those that do not. The ones that don’t have color are absent squares. Its construction is similar to Sierpinski carpet. 

Box fractals are more commonly known as Vicsek fractal or Vicsek snowflake. It was named after Tamás Vicsek, a Hungarian scientist that focuses on numerical studies of dense liquids, fractal growth, and pattern formation (computer and laboratory experiments). 

One of its applications is the creation of the fractal antennathat’s used to maximize cellular reception in the least amount of space. 

Aside from that, the construction of box fractals is an amazing process and very interesting to watch. If you know how to use Python, here’s how you can code a Box Fractal using the program.
