Ever-expanding Fractal Triangles

 Sierpinski Sierpinski Sierpinski by Sam Palmer

I am endlessly fascinated by fractal geometry & I saw this animation on /r/woahdude that grabbed my attention. I just kept staring at it's mesmerizing simplicity...

The animation is a brilliant use of Sierpinski triangles to create endlessly looping motion. 

It appears that the triangles are moving relative to each other, but it is just the expanding self-similarity of the recursive fractal pattern shifting through the triangular boundaries.
