What’s Math Got To Do With It?
1′-10″ h, 7″ dia.
Struggle is part of creation.
Some pieces struggle more so than others. What’s Math Got To Do With It? was inspired by Pinnacle. It started out simple enough, a top-down approach. Do that spire on top. Then get the flow just right. Yeah! Then what? It began to twist. One full 360 degree helical rotation. Then a repeating pattern. (Fractal.) Then, finally, a reverse helix. Sure! The piece is then divided into thirds, vertically. And also in diagonal rotation, counter clockwise.
Got all that? Math and geometry abounded.
This was a near flawless casting adventure. And when light hits it, the effect is sensational (says the unbiased artist). This piece took a total of five months spread out over one and one half years. Hard fought. Hard won. And I still love it.
