Surely many of you have seen this post from Facebook or other sources, but, just in case, I had to post it. This great article (well worth the read) in the San Francisco Globe tells how the designer, mathematician John Edmark has created sculptures with patterns based on the Fibonacci sequence.
As we all know, the Fibonacci occurs a great deal in nature and well describes many recurring patterns that we see in living systems.
This article then has a video that is one of the best you will see all year. They put Edmark’s sculptures under strobe lights that are timed precisely to the angles involved in the Fibonacci. This gives the patterns a life of their own as they are rotated at given speeds.

Read the article if you have the time, but definitely watch the video.
