Fibonacci Florascentia (artwork)
Fibonacci Florascentia Digital Print 2015

This work is an abstract representation of a botanical specimen based on a fractal Fibonacci spiral. Individual flowers grow from the bifurcation points and bend toward the smaller fractal component. Flowers are colored depending on the growing angle. Every flower lies along a larger virtual spiral path of similarly colored and bending flowers. The work is made entirely from circular arcs and filled circles.
