This piece represents a new way of thinking about shapes through the use of anodizing. I have started playing with forms that allow me to anodize and dye the metal a particular color, then cut the anodizing away to reveal bare aluminum and accentuate different parts of the geometry. This piece shares some of the programming frame work from the sculpture that came before it. Essentially I borrowed the program code from the copper parts on DN881. Then I manipulated some of the values within the frame work to achieve a different form without altering the framework of the program. This concept is an idea I have been playing with for a while that has yielded some great ideas for future works.
This piece was a major undertaking. It Stands just a bit less than four feet tall and took a well over 200 hours of work to complete. It was designed to mark the end of the 10th year I have been working as a professional sculptor. It has over 360 individual parts and involved some of the most complicated hand programming and circular geometry I have done to date. It was an exhaustive effort to complete and I photo documented the whole process which can be viewed elsewhere on my web page under the process tab.
