I did some animation for my art119 class. The idea was to play with the star shape because it has five points. I was also timing the animation so that the frames would end or start at 5 sequence such as 5 10 20 100 etc.
Having done the shape, I researched to find that the star contains the Golden ratio in the triangle pieces. I can see something special it this shape. The star contains a pentagram at the center and also if the points of the stars are connected with a line then a pentagram is at the outside of the star. The outside pentagram is twice as bigger then the inner pentagram and inverse.
Man! I'm so mad. The USB flash drive broken down on me. I was not able to retrieve the flash animation assign for Art119. Luckily, I saved the work before at my class computer. However, I lost some of the new work done over the weekend. I've learn my lesson. Apparently, this is a common occurrence. The higher the gig capacity, the more chance it's going to malfunction. I had a 64mb flash drive that was in my pants pocket which went through the wash cycle and the dry cycle. To my amazement, I was able to retrieve my files. I guess I need to save it first to the desktop and then back it up on an other drive.
