The power of five.
This GIF was specially submitted by Ansel Bickerton, a GIF artist who uses geometric shapes and concepts to inform their artwork. It is based on a mixed-media production entitled “Trancendental Golden Mean Parallelogram Spirals Birthing through Phyllotaxis from Pentad Superimposed over Nature’s First Pattern”.
“This one holds a special place in my heart as one of my favorite pieces I’ve done. It highlights the qualities of the ratio 5:6, as well as a binary system of phyllotaxic (plant pattern) growth manifest in golden ratio spirals. The layers of fiveness on top of the underlying sixness of nature’s first pattern in the center create a kaleidoscope-like effect. Inherent in pentagons and pentagrams is the magnificent golden proportion: a:b::a+b:a”
