In Motion/In Progress

I participated in the 3rd annual
Community Supported Art (CSArt)
program at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education.

There were 9 artists participating, each creating an edition of 50 pieces.
At the "harvest", shareholders received a bag with pieces from each of the artists.

I've created a set of 50 unique variations on the two orbit trefoil knot, in colorful hand-dyed 3D printed nylon.

Icosa-Dodecahedral Mandala
The steel mandala is a flattened pair of nested platonic duals; an icosahedron inside of a dodecahedron. The two shapes are not welded together; the icosahedron can be removed from the dodecahedron. They are constructed from 1/4" diameter mild steel rod. polished mild steel - 14.5"x16"x1.5"

Figure 8 Knot
The Figure 8 Knot is a closed loop, which overlaps itself at four points, in its simplest planar projection. The knot is cold-worked 1/4" mild steel rod, oxy-acetylene welded. polished mild steel - 9"x9"x6"

Copper Cinquefoil Knots
Several pentagonal knot permutations, in copper. They each consist of a single closed loop, the ends silver-soldered together.

Borromean Rings
Three mutually linked rings, that will come apart if any one ring is removed. One of the links has a gap in it, so this property can be demonstrated. unfinished mild steel - 6.5"x6"x3"

Alexander's Horned Sphere
A fractal, composed of linked steel loops of descending diameter and rod thickness. This sculpture has 5 levels of loops (horns), and is only a subset of the true infinitely Horned Sphere. The Alexander's Horned Sphere is homeomorphic with the ball (a solid sphere), and has the same boundary as a sphere. This means that it can be continuously deformed (in the 4th dimension) into a solid sphere. Unlike a standard sphere, however, the surface is not simply connected. See mathworld.wolfram.com and math.ohio-state.edu
The Horned Sphere now resides in Newton, MA.
