Geometry and Symbols

I have for a long time used bits of sacred geomtry in my images here and there. I recently have been pushing myself to create some new unique pieces based around geometry. Its amazing how geometry reflects what you see in art. The Fibonacci number or the Golden spiral has long been one that is used often by artist.

In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers are the numbers in the following integer sequence, called the Fibonacci sequence, and characterized by the fact that every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding ones: 1 , 1 , 2 , 3 , 5 , 8 , 13 , 21 , 34 , 55 , 89 , 144 , …

In geometry, a golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral whose growth factor is φ, the golden ratio.[1] That is, a golden spiral gets wider (or further from its origin) by a factor of φ for every quarter turn it makes. A golden spiral with initial radius 1 has the following polar equation: r = φ θ 2 π

Geometry takes place in a lot of visual things we see. There are also many symbols and shapes that represent so much without even saying a word. The cross is one that has been known to represent religion, the upside down cross, typically anti-religion. Even simple math formulas. While I am no expert in math or symbolism, I love how nature and science can be so similar. How it can be so powerful. All photographers and artist are cognizant of the rule of thirds, by placing your subject matter in a certain way it draws your eye in. I try and introduce these aspects into my images hoping to give meaning to someone, to let them search for the meaning inside themselves.

 

I have always been fascinated by symbols, even as a culture now I think we are, icons and logos are the symbols of today. There is a strong connection between science, and art, and the natural world.
