Design Exercises Based on the Fibonnacci Sequence using patterned paper
(1) Patterned papers graded into a tonal column based on the Fibonnacci series of proportions:
(2) Above design cut at right angles and arranged in alternate way based on the Fibonnacci sequence.
(3) Above design divided at right angles and cut into Fibonnacci strips placed with a gap between each strip and glued down.
(4) Fibonnacci strips arranged on plain black background leaving gaps of the Fibonnacci series of proportions:
(5) Flipped alternate strips to make the following design [this was my favourite design!]:
(7) Another Fibonnacci block prepared for the next set of blocks [2 copies created]:
(8) Strips from above arrangement cut into strips and arranged in a square design, leaving a small gap between central strips:
(10) Strips cut diagonally and arranged into an alternating pattern becoming narrower as it progressed:
(11) As above but from a different angle:
The Golden Section
(12) Sketch of the Golden Section. I enjoyed creating this as it helped me understand the theory!
(13) Golden Section created using tonal patterned papers:
(14) A small variation on the Golden Section which emphasizes the diagonal line in each square, illustrating the spiral effect more clearly:
