PRESENTATION OF A SERIES OF ARTWORK
Title of the series of artwork:
pi x 5s Series
Short description of series idea:
I create wall-based geometric abstractions by utilizing grids and simple geometric shapes as tools in inventing systems for visualizing numerical values of sequences derived from the numbers pi and e.
In 2016, I began using a laser cutter. I was curious how my work with numbers would translate into this new material language. I began developing work using laser-cut acrylic sheets separated by vinyl spacers. Here, simple geometric shapes, panel placement, cut-outs, and engraved or drawn lines plot numerical values. The acrylic work is designed in Photoshop, plotted in Illustrator, and created almost entirely on a laser cutter.
The 2018 “pi x 5s Series” is my third series created with the laser cutter. Each pi x 5s work systematically interprets, or maps, a different five-digit sequence from pi. Here, the values of four digits determine the diameters of half-circles cut from small panels which then overlap to create a square. The fifth digit moves one panel by a specific increment. Because, on the grand scale, no set of digits in pi repeats, as I expand this series, or any series, by following the digits in sequence, I can create an infinite number of unique works.
Styles of presented artworks:
Abstract Assemblage, Collage and 3d Objects
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE ARTWORK
Used technique and materials:
Wall-based, laser cut acrylic sheets separated by vinyl spacers.
The binding method:
I don’t understand what you mean by binding method. Do you mean hanging method? Each work uses two all-purpose screws, through the work, with spacers between work and wall.
Available artwork dimensions:
Small: up to 60cm / 24inch
