| I'm an artist exploring the region between art and mathematics. My work is about life in three dimensions: working with symmetry and balance, getting from a zero point to infinity, and always finding beauty in geometry. I've studied more mathematics than most, but I don't use it very directly. I'm absolutely not a mathematician, and most of my designs are drawn rather than computed but it's plain that my creative engine has a lot of math embedded in it.
I use a lot of technology. 3D printing
in metal is the main way that I work, and I also do a lot with subsurface laser damage
I finished art school over 10 years ago, and for most of that period I worked half-time as a programmer, college teacher, tech writer, typist, etc. In the other half I made sculpture as best I could, and I suppose most people thought I was more or less delusional. It wasn't until the late 90's that 3D printing began to be available at the level that could do my work, and then, quite suddenly, I began to be an artist.
I hope you like the designs. They're visions of order in the universe, my peaceful places. I feel calm and hopeful in making them.
