Parsons and Charlesworth recently released Finding Meaning, a boxed set of five lithographs produced on the occasion of the Make It Cherry exhibition at Fernway Gallery in Chicago. Following the release of the Golden Section Finder, Finding Meaning continues their meditation upon the application of the Golden ratio/section/mean by highlighting five ways in which it is interpreted and applied.

Each lithograph contains a golden section rectangle superimposed over a symbol denoting a reading of the ratio. These are; its application in architecture (Le Corbusier’s Villa Stein), its use by Creationists (the cross), its use in determining human facial beauty (the human head), its appearance in nature (the shell) its use by conspiracy theorists (the Eye of Providence).
