Screened Icosahedral Lamp

Screened Icosahedral Lamp

Details Description This piece blends ideas from my previous works Screened Icosahedron and The Light Within.  The geometry is the same as the first work, but scaled up to nearly twice the size, and with a new, two-toned color scheme. The piece is lit from the bottom using an LED puck light just as in […]

Cubes Bound II

Cubes Bound II

Details Description The 19 Cubes series explores variations in the geometry of 19 cubes, with corners pointing up, arranged in a ring. The motivation for the first work in the series (Cubes Unbound I) was to demonstrate the remarkable ability of the 3D printing medium to produce objects which are interlocking from their inception, without the need to create […]

Islamic 12-pointed Star

Islamic 12-Pointed Star

Details Description This 12-pointed star shape is captivating by itself, but when decorated with a five-fold Islamic pattern, it becomes even more vibrant. Since the rhombi that form the faces of the star are not made up of five-fold angles like 36 or 72 degrees (as many people assume), the pattern had to be subtly […]

6 circles

Circles in Space

Details Description This sculpture explores a unique arrangement of six circles in space. A simple concept yields surprisingly complex results, especially as one views the piece from different angles. The color scheme highlights three pairs of circles which interlink with each other without touching.

The Light Within

The Light Within

Details Description Unlit, this piece appears as a simple, white icosahedron.  Turning on the LED light in the base reveals an intricate red-orange-yellow Islamic pattern printed on the interior faces. The effect has been described as “surprising” and “magical” by viewers.

MoMath invitation - shadow

Museum of Mathematics – Grand Opening Invitations

Details Description This project (described more fully in this blog post) was a collaboration between me and several of the MoMath staff.  I designed the outer “shell”, which was laser cut out of special coated paper. It featured three intricate 12-sided spiral star shapes (representing the gala date of 12-12-12), and was constructed in such […]

Screened Icosahedron - orange background

Screened Icosahedron

Details Description The Screened Icosahedron is the application of a traditional, hexagon-based Islamic pattern to the faces of an icosahedron.  The result is a delicate, intricate shape that invites study. Most people turn it in their hands a number of times, then hold it up close and peer through it, in order to appreciate everything […]
