Sunflower Burst: Zoom Black and White – Sacred Geometry

 

For this gif I used a threshold filter to render a black and white version of my fibonacci sunflower spiral. To draw this piece I used multiples of the fibonacci numbers 3 and 5 to make opposite spirals with slopes of 3:5 for one and an inverted slope of 5:3 for the other.

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.
