The Golden spiral is an important part of global art: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio In 1998, Vera W. de Spinadel described the Metallic Mean Family, a [n;n,n,n,...] continued fraction generalization of the Golden spiral: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metallic_mean => This workshop will explore how you can use a Pythagorean theorem generalization of the Metallic Mean Family to make your own spirals out of any rectangle, including png/jpg images. We'll use this Alchemy repo to make the animations: https://github.com/bestape/alchemy As we learn how to use the Alchemy repo, we'll discuss the STEAM values of "nonhalting" (c-b)/a mathematics.
