Elam, Kimberly


What Do a Pine Cone, A Trout, and the Human Body Have in Common? They all have natural proportioning systems that provide the foundation for the work of many-some would say all-artists and designers. Revealing these natural systems, Kimberly Elam uncovers the mysterious relationship between mathematics and beauty. She takes us into the magical realm of geometry-of Golden Sections and Divine Proportion and the Fibonacci Sequence-in language accessible to the most math-squeamish. From there, Elam shows us how symmetry, order, and visual balance underlie designs from the posters of Jan Tschichold to Mies's Barcelona Chair to the new Volkswagen Beetle.Elam, Kimberly is the author of 'Geometry of Design Studies in Proportion and Composition', published 2001 under ISBN 9781568982496 and ISBN 1568982496.
