Golden SpiralSeptember 30, 2013

I was asked to create a design in chalk on the sidewalk of the university’s main campus. As an educational exercise I decided to construct the Golden Spiral. These golden spirals occur in nature as the growth pattern of nautilus shells and spiral galaxies. These spirals are based on  Fibonacci numbers and Phi and are related to growth patterns in nature. Below are two photos of the chalk drawing in progress that I created.
