For a bit of time now I have been trying to connect Fibonacci with Zentangles. I had the idea to design a pattern with the golden curve but decided this would not be a good thing for a tangle. The Fibonacci curve is too calculated and in tangling most things are free hand. However, I did two things, actually three things. Number one, I design a golden curve on the computer and printed it up onto 3 and 1/2 in squares and then tangled it. Number two . . . I used calculations on the computer to design square that would replicate the golden curve, tangled on each of those squares and then pasted them on a background in the shape of the golden curve.
Number three . . . one must first understand what the Fibonacci Sequence is. Very briefly, it is a series of number that follow a sequence, namely 1...1....2....3....5.....8....13.....21....34.....55.... and so on. An easy to understand form of the equation would be: Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2 The third thing I did was to write a Fib. A fib is a poem using this pattern: line 1 has 1 syllable; line 2 has 1 syllable; line 3 has 2 syllables; line 4 has 3 syllables; line 5 has 5 syllables; line 6 has 8 syllables. This is my Fib.
