3D Wall Art | Fibonacci Sunflower

 

This 3D Wall Art | Fibonacci Sunflower Spiral is 44″ x 44″ x 2.25″ art piece is comprised of 441 unique pieces & 10 colors of lumber and plywood.

Everything in the universe is in a constant state of motion and vibration.  You are in motion, your mind is in motion, nothing is without vibration, motion and movement.  Objects that appear to be stationary are also vibrating, oscillating, resonating, at various frequencies.  All matter including my Sunflower Spiral.

Now consider this in regards to yourself and art.  When different vibrating things and processes come into proximity, they too vibrate together at the same frequency.  This “sync-up” phenomenon is known as spontaneous self-organization.  The Stephen Strogatz 2003 book called “Sync” illustrates this very well.  For example, Fireflies of certain species start flashing their fires in sync.  Also, the moon’s rotation is exactly synced with it’s orbit around the Earth such that we always see the same face.  You’ve probably heard whales and dolphins communicate with each other using vibration.

My hope is that these upcoming art pieces resonate with you as well as they do with me.

3D Wall Art | Fibonacci Sunflower Spiral

The Fibonacci number sequence was expressed as early as 450 B.C. in India.  The Book of Calculations or Liber Abaci, 1202 by Fibonacci introduced the sequence to calculate the growth of rabbit populations.  The book term and name was coined in the 19th century by number theorist Edouard Lucas.  The easiest explanation of this recurring growth pattern in nature of 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144… is the sum of the two previous numbers, starting at 0 equals the next sequential number.

This sequence is unique in that it is considered a part of both science and nature.  The Fibonacci numbers are within computational run-time analysis of Euclid’s Algorithm to determine the greatest common divisor of two integers to name one instance.  The sequences appear in biological settings, such as branching in trees, arrangement of leaves on a stem, the fruitlets of a pineapple, flowers, artichokes, pine cones, family trees of honeybees, turtle shells and of course the florets in the head of a sunflower (Helmet Vogel 1979). Other anomaly’s you may be familiar with are the Golden Ratio, Fractals, and 369.

Are you a nature lover? Do strange mathematical & science anomaly’s interest you? Would you consider yourself a discerning collector of incredibly interesting and detailed art pieces? Do you want to live within a tranquil and peaceful environment?  Does the idea of being the envy of your family, friends, clients, guests and random strangers who see you as the owner of a remarkable 3D wall art piece interest you?

About the Artist:

I grew up drawing, playing sports, enjoying the outdoors and being a bit of an overall daredevil.  I’d say there’s no way to judge the amount of hours spent being creative and active.  Also, using that framework at the age of 10 as a budding businessman. For me, it all seemed perfectly normal watching my, highly unique, entrepreneurial parents.  A couple of examples would be collecting sand dollars on vacation and drawing pictures on them to taking my 7th grade wood shop projects with an order form door to door around my neighborhood, to selling my projects.  There were a few mishaps along the way as well and great lessons learned.

Fast forward many years to an undergraduate degree in design a minor in art history to a graduate degree with a marketing track… blah blah blah.  Those undergraduate design class days are where the fascination with numbers and the sync between science, nature and faith began.  We can add 25 years or so as an actual businessman within the sign industry along with a lifetime of discernment, I have reached a point where it’s time to bring these artist ideas outside of my mind.  Here’s my wall art piece representing God’s fingerprint titled ‘Sunflower Spiral 101’

For me true art creates a visceral feeling, in a person, both consciously and subconsciously.  The best art resonates positive feelings of harmony and that’s what I create. These pieces leave me both tranquil and focused in perfect flow as nature often does.  They are made from natural materials and possess balance and move with the viewer at every angle or distance.
