Tree Column

Tree Column

My column was inspired by the branching patterns of a typical tree. A tree gets smaller and smaller as it works from the trunk to the very tips, and branches into more and more limbs. However, instead of randomizing this pattern, I decided to use the mathematical concept of the Golden Rectangle ratios, and divided the branches into 2 pieces starting from the trunk. Hence, the tips of the trees are 1cm, the next section were 2, then 3, 5, 8, and finally the trunk was 11cm. Because I started with a total of 80 wires, the trunk consisted of 80, the next 40, and the branches keep dividing by 2 until it reaches the top, which is 5.
