Projects

Jewelry
My newest artistic endeavor is jewelry–earrings and necklaces. See my Etsy shop for more.

 

Pentaflower
Since the start of 2015, I’ve been interested in a simple mathematical flower structure, made of 52 regular pentagons. I’ve made this shape in a couple different sizes and media–the one pictured hereis 6 feet in diameter.Rose of Five Espresso Buzz

Couch Armada
I collaborated with an architect, a Boeing engineer, and a metalworker to build a full sized driving couch called Chassie. Powered by (2) 24V motors upcycled from mobility scooters. Controlled by a handheld joystick. Styled up with 4 speakers, a subwoofer, an aux input for audio, (2) 120V power outlets, 15m of LED lights, custom side pockets, and some rad orange trim.

Many thanks to Ignition Northwest for their financial support, the Seattle Design Festival and the EMP Museum’s Mini-Maker Faire for inviting us to come play, and to the many friends who helped along the way–particularly the Stroup family for helping with storage.

Hilbert Creations
I have aspirations to build a Hilbert-Cube-Jungle-Gym in the near future. If you’re interested in helping make this a reality, please let me know. Here is a very early prototype, made from PVC elbows (inspired by Chaim Goodman-Strauss).

My Pet Fractal
About a year and a half ago, I stumbled across this fractal. I recently had access to a laser cutter, and I made a few dozen handheld 256-gons. This curve is closely related to both the Sierpinski Curve and the Z-Order (Morton Order). If you know a name for this fractal, or if you’ve seen it in any literature, I would love to hear about it.

LED Array Art
This project is an excuse for me to improve my coding skills and a medium for me to share my mathematical musings more widely. I’ll be playing with variations of Conway’s Game of Life and other Cellular Automata, aiming to both create beautiful graphics and to inspire mathematical conversation in those around me.

Large Group Collaborations
Since 2013, I’ve played lead administrative roles in large art collectives of 25+ people. Each year, I’ve managed funds and budgeting for projects ranging from $5,000 to $30,000. In these roles, I’ve been paying particular attention to what it takes to bring to reality these large scale projects that sound so far-fetched.
