Golden Ratio

A 45 mins sensorial journey by Valerie Renay (writer/ narrator/ singer)

Live music and video projections by Sebastian Lee Philipp


Phi is a number of approximately 1.61803 that appears everywhere in nature.

The familiar spiral shapes the tail of a seahorse, sunflowers, deadly tornados, snails, seashells, the winds of hurricanes, galaxies.

Phi appears in the measurements of our bodies, our DNA, architecture from the pyramids to Le Corbusier, the Holy Bible, paintings from Leonardo Da Vinci to Dali, music from Bach to Debussy.

Does it mean the world was intelligently designed, and not a cosmic coincidence? Or is the golden ration nothing but a human invention, to prove the existence of a higher order of things?

Somewhere deep in the Amazonian forest, the answer might be found.

‘Golden Ratio’ talks about the universe, and why we’re here by titillating your senses in unusual ways. It talks about beauty and meaning, questions the existence of a ‘God’ and our need to believe. It involves feathers and blindfolds, a light breeze on your skin and running in the woods, the strong scent of Lilies and the feeling of walking bare feet on beach sand. An hypnotic voice leads you through a journey starting with the sound of the primordial vibration of earth, ending with acapella singing in complete darkness. It immerses the audience in an environment providing delicate yet powerful sensations.
