The Golden Ratio; Phi; 1.618, describes nautilus shells and how galaxies are formed. It describes the spiral of our DNA. Manfred Clynes, pianist and researcher,discovered that the emotion of unconditional love expresses the ratio of Phi. There are seven layers of muscles around the heart. Each layer has a resonance, and the interval between each resonant layer and the next is 1.618. When we experience love; appreciation; gratitude, our heart literally, physically opens, and our DNA becomes more orderly.

I enlarged this shell, and chose the simplest means, graphite on paper, to slowly build a physical experience of presence, connection, and timeless time; a moment just to be.
