The golden ratio (also known as the golden section or golden mean) is a proportion commonly found in nature. Historically, artists, designers, and architects have used it as a means of defining beauty theoretically rather than intuitively. The Golden Section Finder is a lens through which you can find this proportional “perfection” in your surroundings. Simply hold up the Golden Section Finder in front of objects or images to see if their proportions match the golden ratio.
