Rafael Araujo has created a hand-drawn collection of Golden Ratio illustrations which fuse mystery, art and science. The collection which has taken the past 40 years to perfect and was created with nothing but a pencil, compass, ruler, and protractor.
The golden ratio which is the mathematical formula which correlates to the fibonacci sequence, which is a numerical pattern in which a number is found by adding up the two numbers before it- 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13 and so on to infinity, leaving the golden ratio of 1.618.
This ratio unifies the properties of light, space, time, gravity and our biological make up within our DNA molecules. Our faces are roughly constructed of this ratio and so are our bodies, the ratio of our upper arms to lower arm and upper leg to lower leg all have this ratio. Even our brains are made up of this ratio with the pineal gland being the centre and the pineal gland is thought to be the seat of the soul in many ancient teachings.
It exists within flower petals, trees, seeds, natural foods, shells, the galaxies in the universe which all spiral at this golden frequency.
There is clearly a huge interest in this as Rafael has managed to create a Kickstarter campaign that raised $483,479 AUD. You can pre order a copy and also a few other unique items by going to the already funded campaign HERE
