Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

Plympton always existed just outside the mainstream animation world anyway. His work was often darker, weirder, and more adult than what else was out there. Watching a Plympton animation feels like you’re watching the whole process, like he’s sketching the entire thing live, right in front of your eyes.

We delved into the work of legendary animator and two-time Kickstarter project starter Bill Plympton (via kickstarter)

Cool idea — and of course reminds me of The Uncollection! Love the idea of remixing what you own to replace logos, whether ours or something else!

Logo Removal Service takes discarded gimme shirts bedecked with sponsor logos, and carefully patches over them with new fabric, transforming them into amazing and abstract new one-of-a-kind garments.
They’ll also do custom work, covering over any stains, logos or graphics you want to disguise.

From its very beginning, Central Park has been the people’s park, whether in good times or bad. Since 1980, Central Park Conservancy has been tasked by the City of New York with ensuring that the Park is clean, safe, and beautiful, for now and for forever. It’s a task we cannot do without you.
