Instances of Endlessness

Pattern paintings, Tetra-helical sculptures and a 4 channel audio installation featuring kinetic sound sculptures. Horizontal lines have left the building, Space is cleaved and split into new forms, a process of slightly changing variables and layering is imposed. This group of works stem from a studio process that is defined by the repetition and variation of its efforts. All the works employ a simple system of layering, on the 2 dimensions of the painting, the 3 dimensions of the sculpture and the 4 dimensions of sound. Nothing is static as this layering exposes an emergent quality of aesthetics bound to both the finite and the endless.

Thesis

RESONANT STRUCTURES FOUND BY WAY OF EXPLORING INFINITY

In material objects, a sound or vibration produced in one object, caused by the sound or vibration produced in another, is due to the resonant frequency of both those objects. Resonance is a quality emergent of material and bound to the structural makeup of that material, yet, it is also a word that has entered into our common lexicon to symbolize the effect of an idea and its spread among a population. Resonance is a sustenance of energy transference. Hartmut Rosa would say that resonance can also be seen as a form of equilibrium or balance. Johannes Kepler believed that “there exists a very common geometry in the universe. From universe to smallest particle of matter, everything is under violent effect of this common geometry.”
