PLATONIC CLOUD BY MATTHEW SANDERSON
Taking inspiration from the ratios and proportions contained in the harmonies and rhythms of music this visual collage of hand crafted, spun and vitreous enamelled trumpets are scaled and grouped in a precise order relating to the golden mean or fibonacci series. The branch network above, the chords that descend and the trumpet like flowers are all scaled by the Artist according to this 'natural order'. This 'golden order' has been used by composers from Dufay to Bach, Bartok to Sibelus. 97% of Beethoven, 92% Chopin and 91% of Mozarts' works feature this structure.
