A Difference of 8 Protons is a conceptual series of installation pieces based off of the periodic table of elements and the physical properties of specific materials found therein.
Project Type: Sculpture
These pieces simulate the pattern of lines and voids used to encode the standard UPC barcode, using the object itself to represent the barcode needed to purchase that object.
These are sculptures created using 1-inch cubes to create a 3D relief map of the river courses of three major rivers, the Nile, the Yangtze and the Mississippi. They are approximately 24″ x 36″ x 8″.
These are graphic representations of the Panama Canal, the Suez Canal and the Aleutian Islands, cut from MDF or plywood and set on the floor of the gallery space. They are all large-scale, on the order of ten feet or larger.
These low-relief wall sculptures were cut from MDF and painted black. They are a graphic representation of the digits of the three transcendental numbers π, e and phi, using a script-like glyph set to convert the numerical information into a “scriptural” aspect.
