These spinning 3D sculptures are gorgeously hypnotizing

In this video you will see 3-d printed sculptures designed to come to life when spinning under a strobe light.

According to Wikipedia, “Fibonacci sequences appear in biological settings, in two consecutive Fibonacci numbers, such as branching in trees, arrangement of leaves on a stem, the fruitlets of a pineapple, the flowering of artichoke, an uncurling fern and the arrangement of a pine cone, and the family tree of honeybees.”

As you’ll see in the video below, when you take those sequences and incorporate them into spinning 3D-printed sculptures, magic happens.

From the website Sun-Gazing:

In this video you will see 3-d printed sculptures designed to come to life when spinning under a strobe light. The placement of the pieces of the sculpture follow the same points used in sunflowers and pinecones. The rotation is done so the sculpture spins exactly 137.5º for every flash of light. 137.5º is known as the golden angle. If you count the spirals on any of the sculptures in this video they will all match up perfectly with Fibonacci numbers.
