Sunflower Burst: Electric Zoom – Sacred Geometry

 

This is the final Gif from a series that features the golden ratio spiral from my piece “Purple Sunflower Burst”. I manipulated the colors of this one for a different viewing experience. Have a great day!

Sunflower Burst: Sinkhole – Sacred Geometry

 

Here is another gif rendered from my “Purple Sunflower Burst” piece. It shows the interesting spiral nature of the Fibonacci pattern that I used to place the spheres.

Sunflower Burst: Zoom 3 – Sacred Geometry

 

The third installment of a zooming animation made from my sunflower inspired piece “Purple Sunflower Burst”. Phyllotaxis is the study of plant patterns, and I enjoy working some of these patterns into my work. The Most interesting to me are the Fibonacci/golden ratio patterns present in many plants to solve problems like appropriating equal light to each leaf by the arrangement of leaves.

Sunflower Burst: Zoom 2 – Sacred Geometry

 

This is the second zooming gif featuring my piece “Purple Sunflower Burst”. This gif takes you a little bit deeper into the piece, developing a tighter pattern in the center. I used the adjacent Fibonacci numbers 3 and 5 and their multiples to form an approximation of the sunflower.

Sunflower Burst: Flash – Sacred Geometry

 

The first gif of a set made from my piece “Purple Sunflower Burst”. The piece used to make this gif was originally 30” by 30” ink and acrylic on a painting panel. This piece is inspired by the arrangement of seeds on the head of a sunflower and closely approximates the golden ratio. This ratio enables the sunflower to pack a lot of seeds into one head! Many other plants use this ratio to ensure that each leaf gets the maximum amount of sunlight. Phyllotaxis is a study that documents the many patterns related to plants and their growth.
