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.

Clay Things: Centering M.C. Richards was a performance/happening I did in collaboration with Alex Ferrante.  We were exploring the ideas of Buckminster Fuller, John Cage, and M.C. Richards, three great fixtures of Black Mountain College. We each made ceramic objects based on prompts from words we found on a flier for one of M.C. Richards’ sales.  We then built a geodesic dome according to Fuller’s design, and use Cages ideas of chance operations to determine how our class would build the dome and place all the objects in it. We wanted to literally and figuratively center M.C. Richards and her contribution to the Black Mountain College legacy.

The shelves are permanently installed in the computer lab in the Art Department at Colorado State University. The cups were made so they could sit flat on all four sides.  Since each cup has four different orientations and there are 39 cups, there are 4^39 different patterns that can be made.
