Golden Section Finder (Works)


The golden ratio (also known as the golden section or golden mean) is a proportion commonly found in nature. Historically, artists, designers and architects have used it as a means of defining beauty theoretically rather than intuitively. The Golden Section Finder is a lens through which you can find this proportional “perfection” in your surroundings.

While researching the discredited pseudoscience of Phrenology, we discovered that phrenologists believed they were able to understand different aspects of our personality by reading the bumps on our head. We were interested in making an object that would enable the user to harness these personality traits. Focusing on “sublimity” which is about seeing the beauty in your surroundings, we created the Golden Section Finder as an instrument or lens through which to search for the sublime and to question the concept and application of the golden section.
