Nature by Numbers
Posted by Zen Gardner, 01/18/2016
A short movie inspired by numbers, geometry and nature, by Cristóbal Vila (Etérea Estudios).
“Artists and architects have used since ancient times many geometrical and mathematical properties: we could take some examples simply by observing the refined use of the proportions by architects from Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome or other Renaissance artists like Michelangelo, Da Vinci or Raphael.
But what is more surprising for me is that many of these properties and mathematical developments are also present in NATURE. We could find countless cases, but I wanted to refer only three of them on this short animation: The Fibonacci Series and Spiral, The Golden and Angle Ratios, The Delaunay Triangulation and Voronoi Tessellations.
Hope you enjoy it”.
Cristóbal Vila, Zaragoza, Spain, 2010.
