The ephemeral artworks of British land-artist James Brunt; multiples of natural materials found in forests and beaches near his home in Yorkshire organised into meditative spirals, rings and other geometries which he photographs, then abandons to dissolve, fall apart or blow away.

Animated reaction/diffusion patterns by French visual effects artist Maxime Causeret, set to a track from the album Emergence by Max Cooper. To wit:

…simple chemical feedback mechanisms can yield complex flowing bands of colour — these forms of system were originally thought up by Alan Turing, and were part of the early seeds of the field of systems biology, which seeks to simulate life with computers, in order to better understand the systems producing the complexity we see in the living world.

Headphones, full screen and whatever you’re having yourself recommended for full immersion.

Architect and illustrator Rafael Aruajo is something of a Zen master when it comes to the Golden Ratio and its manifestation in the natural world. Sez he:

I was 15 when I started noticing intelligent patterns in the world of nature—spirals, sequences, proportions. This secret of nature’s beautiful designs unfolded before my very eyes. Everything I draw is by hand. I don’t use a computer, just a pencil, compass, and a protractor.

His meditative process will soon be available in the form of the Golden Ratio Colouring Book (currently massively overfunded on Kickstarter).
