The Fibonacci Spiral, or Golden Spiral, from Wikimedia Commons.
Happy Friday everyone! In the interest of getting some content out before the weekend, I figured I would share something with you all that really made my day. Digital artist and animator Cristóbal Vida has made a wonderful short film called "Nature By Numbers" in which he showcases the elegant relationship between mathematics and the natural world. Check out the project webpage here for an introduction, here for a look at the Fibonacci Sequence and background information, or here to view the video.
I hope everyone has a great weekend. If weather and time permit, try and get outside and observe math in nature for yourself!
