plank's work deals with visual portrayals of information systems. i work with layers of data visualization, from charting to mathematical equations to scientific principles. in the annuli series a visualization based on the fibonacci sequence, an irrational number sequence, encompasses the growth pattern found in the natural world. using a mathematical representation of growth pattern is one layer of the idea of germination and here multiple equation visualization overlap. the work speaks to a core of growth on one level but also represents the way visual data can be represented overall. it reflects in itself a microcosm of our san francisco community’s outputs: technological advancements, scientific discovery, computer-based sciences, and artistic pursuits.
