Platonic Solids (2008) by Michael Hansmeyer

Another project by Michael Hansmeyer, titled Platonic Solids, "explores how a purely operations-based geometric process can generate complex form." 

"Rather than studying the possibilities in combining numerous primitives, this project examines the potential inherent in a single primitive given an appropriate process. It takes the most primitive forms, the platonic solids, and repeatedly employs one single operation – the division of a form’s faces into smaller faces – until a new form is produced. The resulting forms display a novel aesthetic and an astounding complexity that largely defies attempts at reductionism." Via Michael Hansmeyer.

Again, I won't pretend I understand how any of this is formed, but they are so intense and dynamic, it is quite a complex concept but with great results! Can't wait to see what he comes up with next.
