Two Days in November

 

So, it’s been a while. My iPhone ran out of memory today. Therefore, I imported all my photos and videos from the last year or so to my lappy. In doing so I came across a series of photos documenting the fabrication of a #supbrooch. It failed acceptance. Nonetheless, here’s how I spent two days in November:

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.

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.
