a divine ratio
a wedding gift for Neri and Os, with pencils.


I was really inspired seeing the wave-works of Reuben Margolin, and Neri's wedding was coming up. After trying a bunch of different unsuccessful materials, I settled on the pencil - the perfect tool for both the architect and the composer (the two getting married).

The Fibonacci sequence and spiral played heavily into this form, as I find it a beautiful crossover between the world of the natural and the world of the artificial, and once again because of the golden ratio's interplay in architecture and in music.

The name, of course, is a double meaning between the golden ratio, 1.61803399.., and the dynamic balance between two different people coming together in marriage.
