About this piece

Fibonacci 13.1

In the Fibonacci sequence the next number is the sum of the previous two numbers.  So it begins 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13, 21…….  It regularly occurs in nature.  For example in the diameter of consecutive turns of a snail shell.

This work illustrates this as a sequence of turned beech spheres of 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 and 13cm (5+inches) diameter.  In addition to which the distance between the spheres is also in the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8 cm.  These are mounted on a 2.5cm x 17.5cm (maximum) x 54.5cm tapered English oak plinth.  The piece weighs 2.0kg.

It is the work of David Boyd FRSC, who is a scientist specialising in scientific and geometric artworks.
