Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 20, 2015
These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

Photography // Friday, January 16, 2015
The World We Live In is a project by Austrian photographer Daniel Gebhart de Koekkoek.

De Koekkoek's images are romantic, authentic and cover a wide range of subjects that offer glimpses of the world not often seen.
