The four sculptures found in the exhibition were 3D printed by John Edmark, who is an artist and mathematician and who is currently investigating the relationship between design and computer science at Stanford University

Each of the sculptures was designed, taking as inspiration the numerical properties that exist in nature
Here we can see the conjunction between nature and mathematics. These patterns respond to a mathematical phenomenon: the Fibonacci Sequence; Fibonacci was the way they called Leonardo de Pisa, who made the sequence known in the West in the 13th century, long before was known India. The Fibonacci sequence also inspires in the work of Leonardo Da Vinci, The Vitruvian Man. 've you seen?

Observe the geometric pattern in the arrangement of the leaves. Each new sheet is placed 137.5 degrees from the center of the old one.
It is the use of the golden ratio in the sculptures that makes us see movement. The rotation speed of each sculpture synchronizes with the strobe light that emits a flash every 137.5 degrees, what is the angle of the golden ratio and how we said defines geometric patterns in nature.

These spiral patterns are used by various plants such as chrysanthemums or sunflowers and in artichokes, pineapples as a growth strategy.

The rotation speed of each sculpture synchronizes with the strobe light that emits a flash every 137.5 degrees -the golden angle-
He is a professor at Stanford University in California, USA. He has been an academic researcher of virtual environments for several years. His artistic work is directly related to mathematical thinking. Develops kinetic sculptures and transformable objects built with geometric rigor
