Stephen Campbell - Human Wallpaper I European architecture and studies of human proportions feature heavily a number known as phi Φ. This inspired all kinds of artists, mathematicians and theoreticians including Vitruvius, Leonardo da Vinci and Leonardo Bonacci (Fibonacci) is known as the golden ratio and has become some kind of cult on the internet. Japanese architecture features a different proportion known as the silver ratio that can be found in a similar sequence of numbers to the Fibonacci sequence known as Pell numbers. What started for me as an in-joke and conductor for making puppets has become a body of research into visual mathematics and cell division that gets more interesting every chance I get to work on it.
