Printmaking, conceptual and installation art

Project Type: Sculpture

A Difference of 8 Protons

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.

Material Barcodes

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.

Pixel Rivers

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″.

Geographic Installations

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.

Transcendental Representations

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.

Sculptural Metalwork

These pieces are mostly student works from my BFA, but were interesting enough to include here. I majored in both tabletop metalwork and printmaking, but it was much easier to find studio space for printmaking, so my metalwork has languished. These pieces were constructed as conceptual pieces, drinking vessels or decorative pieces. They are constructed

Shipping Containers

Shipping containers have fascinated me for the way they allow incredible amounts of material to be transported in an automated fashion all across the globe. This portfolio illustrates some constructions I’ve done or proposed, and two galleries of prints, which are available here.
