Animated Fibonacci Sculptures

When math is expressed aesthetically, and when art is expressed with the precision and rigor of math, things are bound to look stunning and inspiring. If you haven't checked out Vi Hart's amazing little doodles on the Fibonacci series, or the incredible animation Nature by Numbers, you need to go and check those out right now.

To add to that little collection of awesomeness, today we have a series of sculptures inspired by the Fibonacci sequence (or what ultimately amounts to the same, by the Golden Ratio). To produce this amazing sequence, the artist, John Edmark, synchronized things so that a strobe light would flash every time the sculpture rotated 137.5ยบ—yes, precisely the golden angle. The final result, as you're about to see, is nothing short of spectacular and mesmerizing...




And if rotating animations are your thing, you could do worse than to check out and be hypnotized by the cyclotrope.
