German Forest Ranger Finds That Trees Have Social Networks, Too - The New York Times
“You see how the thick branches point away from each other? That’s so they don’t block their buddy’s light.”

He felled old trees and sprayed logs with insecticides... "I thought, 'What am I doing? I'm making everything kaput.'"

The Strange Story Of The Man Behind 'Strange Fruit' : NPR
"There is something else about Abel Meeropol that seems to connect the man who wrote 'Strange Fruit' to the man who created a loving family out of a national scandal. ...
"'I was the official lawnmower,' Robert says, 'and I was going to mow over them, and he said, "Oh, no, you can't kill the seedlings!" I said, "What are you going to do with them, Dad? There are dozens of them."

"'Well, he dug them up and put them in coffee cans and lined them up along the side of the house. And there were hundreds of them. But he couldn't bring himself to just kill them. It was just something he couldn't do.'"

3D Printed Sculptures Look Alive When Spun Under A Strobe Light | SF Globe
"This series of 3D printed sculptures was designed in such a way that the appendages match Fibonacci's Sequence... When the sculptures are spun at just the right frequency under a strobe light, a rather magical effect occurs: the sculptures seem to be animated or alive! The rotation speed is set to match with the strobe flashes such that every time the sculpture rotates 137.5º, there is one corresponding flash from the strobe light.

"... the sequence starts with two 1's, and each following digit is determined by adding together the previous two. Therefore, Fibonacci's Sequence begins: {1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89...} etc.

"What makes Fibonacci's Sequence so incredibly fascinating is that it manifests in nature in countless places, such as in the branching of trees, the arrangement of leaves on a stem, the flowering of baby broccoli, a nautilus shell, or even the spiral of galaxies; and that's just to name a few... One of the reasons that Fibonacci's Sequence appears in so many plants is because its particular arrangement of leaves along the stem allows for the most sunlight to hit each and every leaf."  2015  2010s  fibonacci  3-D  sculpture  spin  motion  art  optical_illusion  john_edmark  stanford  design  light  vimeo  video  mathematics  plant  nature  sequence  pattern  strobe  speed
