The idea of using the Golden Ratio

October 5, 2011


I used this idea as the perfect number of the running recorded time in which I would take a still shot of the lava lamp film I recorded. As the installation is of part of the carpark melting, it is a comment on our present society and at that time the London riots had started and I felt as though it was transforming into a dystopia. Thus using the golden ratio as the perfect number, the still shot would be the perfect image for the installation to convey this and the idea of the continuous failure in the search for utopia.


My Workings:


Film of lava lamp = 1:12:26


Golden ratio =  1.61803399




13.06mins to 66mins/1hr, 6mins the golden ratio of the lava movement
