Observing Nature's Patterns

What do nautilus shells, kelp fronds, ocean waves, rose petals, and the milky way galaxy have in common? They all have patterns and proportions that make them innately beautiful. And these patterns are all built by the same mathematical rule of nature: the golden ratio. This elegant pattern spirals our DNA along with those of all other natural things. Let's explore nature's patterns together and create cyanotype prints (sun-exposed blue prints) to showcase our findings.
