It is pretty amazing what you can do now days with the help of 3D printer. What you can see on this video is a masterpiece by John Edmark, a professor at Stanford University. John is an inventor, designer and artist who teaches design and he has created these 3D printed sculptures which create optical illusions that will leave you stunned!
These Blooming Zoetrope Sculptures are based on naturally occurring examples of the Fibonnaci sequence and when spun under a strobe light they come to life. If you are interested the Fibonacci Sequence is an assortment of numbers, where the next number is found by adding the two numbers prior. It is definitely work of art, and as the sculptures spin on a rotating base, the leaves and patterns on them appear to move up and down.
For those of you who would like to try creating something like this, the designer has shared instructions. So, check out the video, and share if you like it!
