Pre-IB TOK presentation on art and nature

Hello everybody!

I'm in Pre-IB right now and my TOK teacher told me to make a presentation about art and nature. She told me to focus on mathematical aspects of nature like spirals, fractals, symmetry etc. and its portrayal in art. She even suggested I look into Nikon's Small World photo competition but I feel like it's not enough and I don't know what else to add. I tried googling stuff but nothing concrete showed up. Does anyone have any idea of what I could possibly add to that? The whole presentation should take around 10 minutes but I don't want to have only this one thing she recomended. :erm:

If you want links between math, art and nature, I'd suggest reading up on the Fibonacci sequence and it's relationship with nature.  A lot of natural objects, such as plants and the Nautilus, are linked with it, as is the golden ratio, which may be good if you need to extend it.
