Bloom – amazing animated 3D sculptures

posted 29 January 2015 at 08:35:20

US designer John Edmark has created Bloom, a range of stunning 3D printed sculptures that animate when spun and lit with a strobe light.  The mesmerising movement of the petals is the result of a marriage between art and mathematics – the designs are based on Fibonacci's Sequence, a mathematical sequence that replicates patterns found in nature, such as in sunflowers and pine cones. Watch the video and you'll find yourself entranced by the forms as they twist and turn before your eyes. The sculptures are available at the 3D printing service Shapeways.
