Immerse yourself in the wonders of nature’s universal rule with the the Labyrinth installation @Enlighten Festival.
Labyrinth is a modular colourful “Art-chitecture” and a temporary playground for audiences to explore. The labyrinthine form is driven by an exploration of the golden ratio and its connection to the Fibonacci sequence, which is one of the most famous formulas in mathematics and commonly referred to as nature’s universal rule. It is said to govern the dimensions of everything from the Great Pyramids of Giza to the iconic seashell.
Through the formula, mathematicians can calculate what is called the golden spiral, or a logarithmic spiral whose growth factor equals the golden ratio. The golden ratio can be seen in nature in the patterns on a pinecone, or through the spiral arrangement of leaves or petals on some plants, and even in the seeds of a sunflower. Labyrinth is a modular artwork that creates a colourful and immersive habitat for audiences to explore. It is colourful yet translucent, creating a tapestry of contrasting, and layered hues.
