Artist Statement:


The subtle patterns found in the orientation of the over two thousand blue objects were produced algorithmically by placing the objects under the influence of a number of invisible “control” objects. Those objects falling outside of the influence of the control objects have a random orientation. The orientation of the objects is accentuated by the two-tone coloring.

While all of the objects are based on the same basic geometry, the slight randomization of size and the use of 3 D procedural textures give each the appearance of being unique. This pattern of similar-yet-unique detail is found throughout the natural world, and is the inspiration for much of the artist’s work.
