Californian design lecturer, John Edmark has created a simply mind blowing 3D printed sculpture! 

The sculptures titled, ‘Bloom’ are designed to animate when spun under a strobe light! 

Explaining how the optical illusion works, Edmark said “The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers.” 

“The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle.”
