Creating The Never-Ending Bloom: John Edmark’s spiral geometries

Artist, designer, inventor, and Stanford professor John Edmark creates sculptures that are driven by precise mathematics, but his interest in spiral geometries is driven by something more enigmatic… “a search for unusual behaviors, things that are non-intuitive, that maybe seem impossible.”

In this SciFri Arts video, Edmark shares the evolution of his exploration, from spiraling Fibonacci puzzles, to Golden Angle towers, to 3D-printed, zoetrope-like shapes that seem to grow endlessly when animated under a strobe light: Creating The Never-Ending Bloom.
