 Understanding certain  possibilities started what can be decoded from the plants..The part of natural science where the study of life in living organisms like structure, Function, growth, origin, evolution, distortion, Decay, Distribution, Taxonomy…where taken to account. Understanding certain  possibilities started what can be decoded from the plants..The part of natural science where the study of life in living organisms like structure, Function, growth, origin, evolution, distortion, Decay, Distribution, Taxonomy…where taken to account.

 The book "//On growth and Form//" and the video "//The secret life of Plants//" from Foam Library took me to certain values in nature that should be understood and reflected in its way of exploration.Various discussions and web research in Foam led me to reach to world of "//Phyllotaxis//", the study of mathematical regularities in plants.The research on phyllotaxis led me to understand the various functions in nature like growth, geometry and patterning of various plants.The basic patterning in leaves according to research  where alternate, opposite, whorled or spiral. The book "//On growth and Form//" and the video "//The secret life of Plants//" from Foam Library took me to certain values in nature that should be understood and reflected in its way of exploration.Various discussions and web research in Foam led me to reach to world of "//Phyllotaxis//", the study of mathematical regularities in plants.The research on phyllotaxis led me to understand the various functions in nature like growth, geometry and patterning of various plants.The basic patterning in leaves according to research  where alternate, opposite, whorled or spiral.

 This research took to new heights by understanding the spiral dynamics in nature of plants and the role of Fibonacci number.The advantage of fibonacci pattern and phyllotaxis where studied from the internet.The question always stroked me why I am studying these things….I realized that to make people learn or give them new experience of growth, geometry and patterning.Various research of plants and its geometrical relationships where studied from various websites.As in search of spiral dynamics old school instruments and other relations came to notice. This research took to new heights by understanding the spiral dynamics in nature of plants and the role of Fibonacci number.The advantage of fibonacci pattern and phyllotaxis where studied from the internet.The question always stroked me why I am studying these things….I realized that to make people learn or give them new experience of growth, geometry and patterning.Various research of plants and its geometrical relationships where studied from various websites.As in search of spiral dynamics old school instruments and other relations came to notice.

 From the relation of growth, geometry and patterning of spirals in nature it also questioned me about the movements in nature. Collaboration with a contemporary dancer "//Tine Maringka//" and discussions led me to the perspective of movements in the contemporary/traditional dances.Various research on contemporary/traditional Dances where undertaken for understanding why movement is represented in performances. From the relation of growth, geometry and patterning of spirals in nature it also questioned me about the movements in nature.

 The field of inquiry for this project, for us, is the research where it could bring new dimensions to understand the growth,geometry and patterning in plants by movement.The movement seen in the growth/decay can also reflect to various spaces.The interaction of plants and the human beings through the representation of movement in an interactive system can be the future of this research.This can also reflect contemporary dance spaces where the immersiveness of an individual can bring new perspectives of movements from nature. The field of inquiry for this project, for us, is the research where it could bring new dimensions to understand the growth,geometry and patterning in plants by movement.The movement seen in the growth/decay can also reflect to various spaces.The interaction of plants and the human beings through the representation of movement in an interactive system can be the future of this research.This can also reflect contemporary dance spaces where the immersiveness of an individual can bring new perspectives of movements from nature.

-It all started with discussions with various Foam members and other creative professionals, the main approach for me from the beginning was a little bit mess. In-order it lead  me to various ideas and millions of idea which bursted into my head. As a designer I used to create beautiful things and it lead me to artifacts which I could show people and reflect on it may be that made me ideas to create something beautiful.The research on websites also let me enter into cross disciplines which I had an eager to do research but time was a constraint.I also started collaborating with some of the artists to share ideas and also share my research on which I was doing that lead to a stable stand where I am now.+It all started discussions with various Foam members and other creative professionals, the main approach for me from the beginning was a little bit mess.

 +The research on plants started with phyllotaxis understanding the Fibonacci series and the geometrical placement of leaves and petals.The spiral placement, geometry and patterning of plants lead me to explore various spiral relationships. I started taking spirographs as a medium to explore various spiral relationships.Finding old school instruments like spirographs and other graphical instrument was quiet difficult.These instruments has become an historic tool as the computer generated graphics has changed a new perspective. 
 + 
 +The mathematical relations of spirograph where studied and the algorithm to generate various spirographs where done.Various iterations where done in the open source plug in - generative modeling for rhino 3d called grasshopper 3d to achieve an algorithm for spirograph.An archive of various spirographs where made using this algorithm to understand the nature of the spirograph and how it is continuous and how these generated spirographs leads to patterning also was done.The growth of the flower starts with the growth of the petals from the bud relating it to the spirograph relating to the growth of these spirographs through the algorithm was also studied.The linear and non linear spirographs where studied and the patterning of it also was made.One of these spirographs from the archive was taken and it was explode to the ground. 
 + 
 +The exploded view of the spirograph made the dancer to take it it as tool for herself for improvisation.The spirograph placed in the ground was also allowed to know what people reflected towards it.Snapshots where captured from the camera in two different views one from the top and side view to understand the perspective of the movement. 
 + 
 +These snapshots and the movement is reflected towards the flipbook and also the exploration of various illustrations to movement is the possibilites to be explored.
