A video that was part of the exhibition The Sword - Form & Thought; introducing the role of geometry in medieval philosophy, art, engineering and sword design. The swords used as examples in this video were all part of the exhibit and not chosen on the basis of harmonic proportions or geometry. Only after they were selected did I document them and submit them to analysis for possible geometric principles underlying their design. The video is 15 minutes and rather slow paced. I can completely understand if you do not have time or peace of mind to sit though it. It consists of three sections: - Background, showing the role of geometry in medieval philosophy, religion and engineering/architecture - Some basic geometric constructions that were common principles in medieval design. -A selection of examples of geometry and harmonic proportions in the swords of the exhibition. Hope you enjoy! https://youtu.be/FiSoLMx3v0I
