The Fibonacci Circles collection shows arrangements of circles whose diameter corresponds to the Fibonacci numbers. The diameter of a single circle is therefore the sum of the diameters of the next two smaller circles. The colored areas grow as the square of the Fibonacci numbers.
Fibonacci Flower II
The image Fibonacci Flower II (similar to the Fibonacci Flower I) uses the circles to bring to bloom the petals of a mythical flower that vaguely resembles a water lily. The petals are constantly rotated around the innermost circle by the golden angle, touching the inner circle just slightly. In nature, a similar arrangement can be observed with many plants as it minimizes shading of their leaves and maximizes sunlight.
