There is an ongoing debate among graphic designers, mathematicians and scientists about whether the Golden Ratio in relation to design is a myth. But there is plenty of evidence, not only in nature but in created design, that proves the ratio to be a solid tool for us designers.
Mathematics is everywhere. It is in the objects we create, in the works of art we admire. Although we may not notice it, mathematics is also present in the nature that surrounds us, in its landscapes and species of plants and animals, including the human species. But how does this happen?
Fractals are complex, never-ending patterns created by repeating mathematical equations. Yuliya, a undergrad in Math at MIT, delves into their mysterious properties and how they can be found in technology and nature.
What's so special about Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man? With arms outstretched, the man fills the irreconcilable spaces of a circle and a square -- symbolizing the Renaissance-era belief in the mutable nature of humankind.
