Pentamen spiral

40 cm x 40 cm
Digital print on acrylic

This spiral of human figures link their arms and legs together to form an infinite spiral based on design elements of a inscribed pentagram. Whereas in the traditional form the edges of the pentagon are equal length, in this representation each successive edge is scaled in proportion to the golden mean, thus creating a spiral instead of a closed figure. The arm and leg linkages create both forms of the golden triangles with angles of 36°, 72° and 108°.
