This Mysterious Sculpture Starts To Spin… And Then The Magic Really Happens.
The human mind is an incredible thing. It has the ability to take in all sorts of information from the world we live in and interpret it as sensory data. For example, our eyes are constantly bombarded with information and based on how our brains break down the data, simplify, and filter it, we establish visual perception.
Artists who can understand these visual basics can produce some really amazing, mind-bending creations. Take for instance, Janno Ströcker, Frederik Scheve, and Dieter Pilger who developed a 3D-printed zoetrope, designed around the mathematical principle of the Fibonacci sequence.
Luckily, you don't have to be well-versed in math to appreciate the sculpture. Depending on how the light inside the sphere illuminates it, the otherwise stationary object appears to spin, change direction, stop, and start again. I watched the video about five or six times to really understand what was going on. After awhile, I just sat back and enjoyed the beautiful piece of art.
Watch this amazing video.
