These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.

I'm confused, what does rearranging a Tool album mean?

Small world. A coworker this morning was all lathered up and excited wanting to talk about Fibonacci and spirals.

I said do you even fractal bro?

That's just surreal. I'd love to see that firsthand.

Nifty. Makes my head hurt though.

Alright, I'm headed to the store. What do you guys want me to pick up before we really get started?
