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:

For Your Neck

New work for your neck added to small works:

…and one that’s not for your neck.


Going to BSU

Was invited to visit Ball State University to help christen the ULS 4.60 that’s new to their metals studio. Excited to see what we come up with!

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.

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?

Collaboration with Lisa Wilson

For the past 5 weeks Lisa Wilson and I have worked on a piece for a show hosted by Torpedo Factory’s – Target Gallery based on the theme of “Pandora’s Box.” While the results of our collaboration were rather fruitful, as recent M.F.A. recipient Derek Reverts put it, ” [we] have arrived safely at the nut house.” Ladies and gentlemen, we present 2012:

Next – Actuate Dodecahedron

So, it is summertime, my house is nearly painted, I’ve gutted one of my bathrooms for remodel, and I’ve begun taking steps toward what I hope to be my thesis work. I want to actuate my dodecahedrons based on viewer’s movements within the gallery. I’ve begun making models and prototypes of the various components to achieve this goal. Here is a short (5min or so) video of what I’m working on/progress.

Phase One – Reception

The lights were fading, the cheesecake was being consumed, and we had pretty good turn out considering it was the last week of classes. Thanks to all who made it out. Here is a short video thanks to Christian. Check out more vids from the reception on his page.

Spatially Sensed Experience: Phase I

After an exhausting week of moving, litterally, tons of bricks and buckets of water, Spatially Sensed Experience: Phase I is now on display in Hiestand Gallery, ready for your viewing/experiencing pleasure until May 8th. The opening reception is Thursday, April 30th, from 4:30pm to 6:00pm.
