I posted this some years ago I've often wondered how important the so called golden ratio really is in art. BUT that is another issue! As art quilt makers it's important that we know which guidelines are really useful in designing Like the old story of the famous grandmother's recipe for roast turkey which involved cutting a 2" slice off each end of the beast.
The family swore for years this was the secret to her perfect roasts, finally somebody asked the old lady the reason for this rule And cooking isn't the only place where strange superstitions and practices have built up over the years And I want to know "why? Well, here's the standard definition: And in mathematics the 1.
The Greeks revered it. Kepler said that in geometry there are 2 treasures: So last week I went to a couple of lectures by the Famous Calculus Professor FCPnow retired and keeping his mind active by examining any claims as to the magic of numbers!!
He showed us 9 different rectangles: They were all different ratios: Opinion was somewhat divided but people did tend to prefer certain ones.
Scroll down to the very end to see which one is the so called "golden" one So is there something to this?
Have artists, architects, musicians etc across the ages used these particular proportions to increase the beauty of their art form???

You could actually take any portrait and just randomly draw lines on it and sooner or later you'll come up with the right ratio. People have spent a lifetime analyzing the number of words in verses e. They thought people like Mozart used the GR and counted up the notes, or the phrases etc etc…but a careful analysis shows the same problems with music as with poetry.
Imagine counting all those notes? They simply used whatever felt right for their particular art form. So is the whole thing about the Golden ratio a load of old cobblers then? Now you all know the Fibonacci number sequence This is the sequence where you simply add the two previous numbers in the row to create a third number:Rhyme And Rythm in Blake's A Divine Image - Rhyme And Rythm in Blake's A Divine Image In "A Divine Image", Blake uses several techniques and literary devices, to transmit his thoughts about social injustice, cruelty and human nature, Rhyme and rhythm are two of the main features in this poem this poem is the rhythm affect the whole mood, tone and meaning of the poem.
A goal for the course was to have students learn the theory but to come out of the course feeling like they had some skills in generating and analyzing data and a passion for understanding in a much deeper and more meaningful way.
