The order that silently governs our seemingly disorderly world. ‘Square Wave’ by @ivanblacksculpture is based on the Fibonacci, the basic structure that makes up every living thing. #IvanBlack #InTheMannerOfSmoke #ALICEBLACK

Wales-based sculptor Ivan Black creates large-scale kinetic sculptures that are inspired by mathematical formulae and minimal design. One of his latest pieces, Square Wave , is smaller than his typical works and was designed in response to the Fibonacci sequence . The mobile-like object is made up of several metal bands which curve and flatten as the work twists, creating a mesmerizing movement that is at once fluid and strictly geometric.

The sculpture is included in the group exhibition In the Manner of Smoke  at  Alice Black Gallery  in London through July 7, 2018. You can view more of Black’s interactive designs based on mathematical structures on his website and Instagram . (via Design Milk )
