Abstract:This is a project exploring plant alteration (ex: hybridizing, genetically modifying) and the response of the ancient ratio PHI (or 1.6180339..) in the physical characteristics of plants. A number that has been linked as a designing factor for nature, it is an attempt to see what happens to this number when nature is definitively changed.
