The Golden Ratio Inspired This Projection Mapped Music Visualizer

We created the Torus and used it a VJ installation. A torus is a mathematical object based on the golden ratio. This golden ratio can be found in various places in nature like sunflowers, fingerprints and animals. We combined technology with the beauty of nature. The shape of the Torus is inspired by the works of Yoshinobu Miyamoto. The Torus contains the golden ratio inspired by nature. We combined the Torus with projection mapping using Resolume Arena, Raspberry Pi, Fadecandy, and LEDS which correspond with the visuals.


The design process took half a year. We also wrote a blog post every week to document the process. You can also find instruction to recreate this on our Instructables project.
