Prompt #6

This series of images illustrates the 'golden ratio' used in design. The golden ratio is a set of perportions discovered during the renaissance era that exist in almost all natural things. It is found satistically, that humans are naturally more attracted to those things which follow this proportion (for example, almost every Miss America to date has had a waist to hip ratio of 1:1.681), and so many designers use this bit of math to their advantage. While I was going to school in Italy we took a field trip walking around the center of town and checked the proportions of many of the 'great' buildings looking for the Golden Ratio and found it in almost all of them.
