Fibonacci Sequence

DSC_0007

The Fibonacci sequence repeats in the growth of the plant kingdom and the animal kingdom from the buds on a succulent, to the shell of a nautilus.

As a class, we applied the Fibonacci sequence to artwork. The tiles of our classroom offered us a grid, which we used to align autumn leaves in a Fibonacci spiral. Andy Goldsworthy helped inspire our work after watching┬áhis documentary, “Rivers and Tides.” Below are some examples of Mr. Goldsworthy’s work.
