The Fibonacci Rectangles collection shows arrangements of Fibonacci rectangles whose height and width are two consecutive Fibonacci numbers. The length of a rectangle becomes the width of the following rectangle. The color gradient reflects the distribution of a given amount of pigments over ever larger areas.
The smallest rectangle is a 1×1 square and has been colored red as the origin of the image. It symbolizes the Big Bang, or seen from the other side, the “red” hole.
Starting from the first rectangle, the following rectangles are arranged in a spiral form, always rotated by 90º. The length / width equality of consecutive rectangles becomes visible. The red rectangular diagonals underline the spiral shape.
