The Golden Section Spiral Fractal - 2014.

Golden section spiral fractal engraved and painted sandstone

60cm x 66cm. Engraved and painted sandstone. 2014

The limits of this sixth generation fractal, based on the golden section spiral, are a golden section rectangle.

The length of the perimeter of the fractal would be infinite if an infinite number of generations were drawn.

However, the infinite fractal would have a finite area.
