Chocolate Phiolin

Each year, the Denver Young Artists Orchestra invites about 10 visual artists to paint a violin. These are then offered to the public by raffle during a May fund raiser. When the raffle is listed on the DYAO website, I'll link to it.

Soon, I will show you  "Chocolate Phiolin", a violin collaged with candy and coffee wrappers, sudoku puzzles, painted fibonacci numbers. Some of my obsessions. The ratio of each successive pair of numbers in the fibonacci series has the ratio of 1.618...., which in mathematics is called "phi".

This numeric sequence is related to musical scales and  harmonics.
