This is a really lovely use of the Fibonacci Sequence to create a mosaic from circular photographs. Beautiful. Damien Hirst gets paid a fortune for thinking up ideas like that.


This mosaic was made from 1099 individual photographs of circles, photographed by 265 talented individuals. The mosaic was constructed by Jim Bumgardner using images from the Squared Circle photo pool at Flickr.
