Reconstruction of the 2016 Sparticles Wood formation | ||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw and extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | |

2. |
Copy circle 1 two times, to its lefthand intersection with the horizontal, and to its upper intersection with the vertical centerline. | |

3. |
Draw the connecting line between the mutual intersections of circles 2. | |

4. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 1, with one angular point on line 3. | |

5. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 4.Steps 4 and 5 are repeated seven times, each time for the previous square and circle.
| |

6. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 5, with one angular point on line 3. | |

7. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 6. | |

8. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 7, with one angular point on line 3. | |

9. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 8. | |

10. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 9, with one angular point on line 3. | |

11. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 10. | |

12. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 11, with one angular point on line 3. | |

13. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 12. | |

14. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 13, with one angular point on line 3. | |

15. |

16. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 15, with one angular point on line 3. | |

17. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 16. | |

18. |
Construct the inscribed square of circle 17, with one angular point on line 3. | |

19. |
Construct the inscribed circle of square 18. | |

20. |
Copy circle 19 to the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline. | |

21. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 20 at the upper side. | |

22. |
Draw four rays of circle 1, from the center to its intersections with the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | |

23. |
Circles 1 and 21, squares 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 14, and lines 22 are used for the final reconstruction. | |

24. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. | |

25. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... | |

26. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the 2016 Sparticles Wood formation. | |

27. |
The final result, matched with the aerial image. |
