Drawing the infinite in a finite space...

Hello

I was wondering that is it possible to draw a line or just something infinitely long in a given, fixed finite space?

P.S. I already have thought one way to do it, but was wondering if others had yet better ways of doing the same.(If I'm going wrong somewhere, please correct me)

My method:

Koch's snowflake http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koch_snowflake may be considered as an infinitely long perimeter drawn in a finite space.

EDIT: This question arose in my mind after watching this excellent video on fractals.

I would encourage you to look at Koch Snowflake Part 1 and Part 2.

Thanks Sir! I had already attempted those two problems some time back.
