The idea of a ``Multiple Reduction Copy Machine'' (MRCM) is used to explain iterated function systems and fractals. The purpose of the paper is not to develop the theory completely but to explain enough in order to create fractals on the computer. A computer animation is presented that can be accessed on the Internet with a Javaenabled browser at: http://www.warrenwilson.edu/$\sim$fsolomon/ZZFract.html.
