Distinguished Artist Alumni Award

Exploring themes of education, elevation and light, the commemorative design for the 2012 Distinguished Artist Alumni celebrates the outstanding achievements of honored Alumni: Fletcher Benton (’55 – Artist/Sculptor), Jim Clemes (’80 – Architect), Robert Honeysucker (’71 – Vocal Artist), Klara Zieglerova (’92 – Scenic Designer). Designed and fabricated in fine silver by Miami University Visiting Assistant Professor, Geoff Riggle, this commemorative design features an elevated lamp that houses a four-sided faceted brick (authentically created from those found on the Miami’s Oxford Campus) as well as an internally illuminated medallion highlighting the disciplines of study of those honored.

Beautiful Bunny

It has been quite some time since my last post and I felt compelled to do something about it. A lot has happened in recent months: I graduated, went to Prague, got an adjunct gig(s), got a visiting gig, and am enthralled in the development of Miami U’s SFA 2nd Annual Summer Camp for Teens (more info and hopefully a link will come in due time) as its ‘director.’ Jeez my palms are suddenly sweaty.

Meanwhile, enjoy this captivating and mildly disturbing ‘viral’:

On The In-Between: Stop Motion

Stop Motion Capture of my thesis exhibition installation (April 14-22, 2010). Soil is strategically placed on the floor of the gallery delineating a path the viewer must navigate/traverse to view the sculptural rings on display. I wrote a short Processing script to run on the iMac in the gallery.

Folding Dodecahedron

A couple weeks ago, after months of trials and tribulations, I finally got a fully folding/unfolding prototype of a dodecahedron. I experimented with a plethora of materials and actuators ranging from paper and nitinol wire to copper and dc-motors, finally settling on acrylic and servos.

Now… what do I do with this thing?
