~The Hidden Geometry In Nature

2016
Thesis Project

Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore
Botany consists of an enormous world of living beings in different colours, sizes, shapes, performing vast amount of functions in the most amusing ways. This world of plants has a complex structure that not only enables them to live in the environment effectively but also helps us decode their ecosystem. The most complex of the forms in nature can be broken down into simple shapes and forms with the help of mathematics and geometry. 

The Hidden Geometry in Nature is a personal project that explored at the intersection of science and art. Through various convergent and divergent thinking tools, I explored how geometry is so persistent in nature. Starting by observing cells of different organisms and plants under a microscope, I began noticing the repetitive and almost perfect cohesive patterns. Moving from micro to macro, I began exploring how geometry exists perfectly in nature through Golden Ratio and Fibonacci sequences.

The final outcome was a series of digital illustrations, which were proposed to be projected at the 'Science Gallery, Bangalore' with Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore. It represents a Botany which consists of an enormous world of living beings in different colours, sizes, shapes, performing vast amount of functions in the most amusing ways. The most complex of the forms in nature can be broken down into simple shapes and forms with the help of mathematics and geometry. The illustrations are a juxtaposition of geometry on the botanical forms. An interplay between the two layers is symbolic of how art and science always coincide in nature.
