Gold & Green: The mathematical beauty of nature

… [Rafael Araujo] adeptly renders the mathematical brilliance of nature with just a pencil, compass, ruler and a protractor. He was fifteen when he first observed intelligent patterns in the work of nature and learned about PHI (ϕ), the Golden Ratio. This ratio equals 1.618 and is found everywhere in the realm of nature. By applying the Golden Ratio in his geometric formulas the secret of nature’s beautiful designs unfolded before his eyes … With his work it is his greatest hope to inspire a much needed love for our natural environment.
