Golden Fear


This aesthetic distillation was inspired by the concept of being told to to fear something that is associated with the golden rule. 

The American Mathematical Society has accepted “Golden Fear” in their upcoming show in San Antonio, Texas Here is a link to the other Mathematical Artworks accepted in the show.

“Golden Fear” uses one of the equations for the golden ratio or phi, which is the most irrational number compared with all irrational numbers. Out of all the equations for phi “Golden Fear” uses the equation, which is in the form of a continued fraction. However, the word ‘fear’ is substituted for the number '1' in the original equation

Here is more information on the Golden Ratio.
