I loved to play with Spirograph as a child. Invented in 1965, the Spirograph with its numbered wheels and rings combine art and mathematical principles to inspire and create intricate designs. In these three pieces (NFS - 3, FNS - 5, FNS - 8) the circle sizes, hole piercings and threading intervals are numbers of the Fibonacci sequence.
