DESIGN AND ANALYSIS SOFTWARE INSPIRED BY PHI, THE GOLDEN RATIO

 

"Each of the hundreds of available overlay templates is a unique creation reflecting the golden ratio, expressed in lines of mathematically-based code and pixels on a screen rather than strokes of a brush. Each pattern invites the spectator to engage their perceptive and creative skills to achieve its purpose: To unveil the beauty of the golden ratio in the world around them and then to apply it in their own unique way." Gary Meisner, creator of PhiMatrix
