What you’re seeing:

This series of 3D printed sculptures was designed such that the appendages match Fibonacci’s Sequence, a mathematical sequence that manifest naturally in objects like sunflowers and pinecones. When the sculptures are spun at just the right frequency under a strobe light, a rather magical effect occurs: the sculptures seem to be animated or alive! The rotation speed is set to match with the strobe flashes such that every time the sculpture rotates 137.5º, there is one corresponding flash from the strobe light.
