His analysis of Greek art led Hambidge to the “re-discovery” of Dynamic Symmetry, the law of natural design based upon the symmetry of growth in man and. THE ELEMENTS OF DYNAMIC SYMMETRY BY JAY HAMBIDGE DOVER a monthly maga- zine which Mr. Hambidge published while he was in Europe. He found his answer in dynamic symmetry, one of the most provocative and stimulating theories in art history. Hambidge’s study of Greek art convinced him that.

Any side of a triangle may be called the base. This seems to be all that is known of his character. As one can see, the transformation of the lattice by means of hyperbolic rotation is characterized by periodicity.

A line jxy position, and it has length, but neither breadth nor thickness. This overlap is equal to the square AC minus the area ED or. In geometry a mean proportional line is equivalent to a square root.

In the lattice system different recurrent number sequences are realized on different hambidgw. It has also been referred to as the ”divine section,” “golden section,” “divine proportion.

Dynami idea is that the fundamental regularity of the structural organization of cone phyllotaxis is composite and not logarythmic spiral.

He also accepts that: Hambidge’s idea of dynamic symmetry. Is design intuitive or is it consciously and methodically worked out? The transformations result in: As we see, the logarithmic spiral is a peculiar asymptote for the composite one.

And, while I thank you for your citation, I have no interest in reading further about Dynamic Symmetry, and I see no need to “correct” my blog. There are two things you can do with Dynamic Symmetry: Every term divided into a third term equals 1. The information is potentially very useful to me as an artist, but the terminology is dense, and I am not very savvy in terms of math or complex geometry. Le Corbusier links such symmetru division to the proportions of human symmetdy.


They are, how- ever, commensurable in square.

Simply stated, this means that three lines situated like the three radii vectors mentioned constitute three terms of a continued pro- portion; OA is to OB as OB is to OC. In that case the hambidgf diagonals will appear as in Fig.

MH, IB are each composed of two squares. Thus, the series of rectangles is formed with the ratio of sides expressing the series. Nature provides many plant examples wherein the curve-cross system varies from the normal whole number series.

Here there is dependence: An octahedron is a solid figure contained by eight equal and equi- lateral triangles. The Square 1 or Unity. Draw a diagonal to the whole. But we may draw a logarithmic spiral within a rectangle:
