    The Fibonacci Cubes are part of the Sculpture Trail.
    They are the artist's perspective on the subject of infinity. The nine permeable cubes of different sizes stand in the extensive agricultural landscape. The dimensions of the cubes result from the Fibonacci series. It represents the best approximation to the golden section and is formed by the sum of two consecutive numbers, which results in the following number (0,1,1,2,3,5,8...). Against the background of the landscape, which is constantly changing with the seasons, the time of day and night, the "cubes", which are so tangibly real in their cool mentality, appear surreal, almost magically alienated - like controlled transitions into uncontrolled landscapes of consciousness.

  • It's fun to drive through the largest cube. Through this interaction intended by the artist, the work of art is expanded or completed; in other words, one becomes part of the art at this moment, is not only a viewer, but also an object of art creation 😃👌

  • One of the absolute highlights of the sculpture path, which is rich in highlights, are the Fibonacci cubes.
    What is Fibonacci?
    This here: de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci-Folge
    “The Fibonacci sequence is the infinite sequence of natural numbers that (originally) begins with two numbers 1 or (often, in modern notation) is additionally provided with a leading number 0.[1] The sum of two consecutive numbers then results in the number immediately following:

    0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, ...”

    In terms of cubes this means:
    en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_cube

    The artist Petra Paffenholz designed the cubes for the sculpture path that leads through the flat land on the edge of the east side of the Dümmer.
    With its red rusty metal structure and its sheer size, the work of art offers a beautiful contrast to the flat, pleasing agricultural landscape around it. Exciting, beautiful and always to be rediscovered, because each cloud creates new aspects and changes the texture of the work.

    About the artist:

    Excerpt from it:
    "2007 prizewinner in the competition "CULTURE AND SCULPTURE PATH: THE VIEW". A tender by the STADT DIEPHOLZ on the subject of RESOURCES and SUSTAINABILITY in cooperation with the local AGENDA 21 support association. She confidently placed HER VIEW on the subject of INFINITY in this “value-adding” exhibition space. She left the city - using the spacious concept possibilities of LAND ART - a monumental and yet very personal statement. The city of Diepholz placed NINE different-sized, permeable STEEL CUBES ("CUBES") according to their model - in April 2014 the large-scale project finally became REALITY - in an extensive agricultural landscape. In the logically related formats from the FIBONACCI number series (from 0.20 meters of the smallest cuboid to the impressive large format of 6.40 meters of a side length/outer edge), the cool materiality of the “CUBES” is so tangibly real on the The background of the landscape, which is constantly changing with the seasons, day and night, is surreal, almost magically alienated... like controlled transitions into uncontrollable landscapes of consciousness.”
