Where Does Symmetry End?


The current issue of one of the lesser known (Free) magazines, ARAMCO World, features a photo in the back section devoted to exhibits which captured my attention.  The photo courtesy of the ATHR Gallery features Sara Salman’s “Solar 2009” ink on printed paper.  See link-different than artwork above.

The Fibonacci Spiral has always amazed…it really makes you wonder about the ultimate origin….There are plenty of those mesmerizing videos showing the endless colored phasing of  the spiraling into infinity.

Well, here’s another video that with patience, watch as she gets into mapping the spirals across all kinds of natural objects such as pine cones, flowers and fruits….wondering about symmetry?  Where does this order originate?  How is it so perfect?
