This work was my thesis show. The forms of the metal sculptures were determined by the following parametric equations.  The grids of paint are made from plastic bags filled with the paint that was used to paint the sculptures. The grids represent a u-v plane, and the placement of the colors on the sculptures shows how a flat plane is mathematically mapped onto a curved surface.
