Concrete and Golden Ratio Study
This project involved a study of the material concrete and the use of the Golden Ratio that is a result of the Fibonacci Sequence. These were to be incorporated into the design of a textile block with the dimensions 9" x 9" x 3".
The design sprung from the squares required to create two Fibonacci Spirals. Those squares were then rearranged to create a pattern visually similar to a fractal. From there, the depth of each square was determined by applying the Fibonacci sequence to the three-inch required thickness for the textile block. So, the smallest squares reached the deepest, breaking through the bottom of the block, while the largest squares remained at a shallow depth proportionally.
The block was cast using a wooden form for the exterior of the bock. The smaller form work was created by cutting foamcore so size, using chipboard for small adjustments. These pieces were then covered in duct tape and glued in place. The surface area of the form was then oiled to prevent it from sticking after the concrete set.
