The Dodecaplex is a multi-layer dodecahedron chime sculpture. Each layer is expanding at the golden ratio starting at 2" rod sections and ending at 21" lengths. The Golden Mean, sometimes called the Fibonacci Sequence, is all around you and found in almost all living things on earth. Our eyes are drawn to it and it is a base for what we consider beautiful or not and its ratio is what gives us the harmonics in music. I wanted to play on this fact and see how a shape would compare to itself when nested in golden increments. The sound that it makes was an unexpected surprise. The way it echos through itself is an intoxicating, vacuum of space experience that draws you through it as it reverberates around you.
