Fibonacci Floret

March 23rd, 2012 — Foothill Ranch, CA

I created this Processing sketch to generate some background patterns for a design project. I knew that I wanted a pattern of radiating dots and I remembered that the Fibonacci sequence was connected to a pattern like that.

I hopped on Wikipedia and found an article about the Fibonacci Sequence in Nature. The article provided a set of equations to plot the pattern and I added some mouse controls for manipulating the equations to explore various designs.

Don't forget to check out the source code and adapt this for your projects. Let me know if you do; it always makes me smile.
