Artist Statement:


In designing this piece, I used a combination of traditional sculptural techniques (in my studio at home) and 3-D computer modeling and rendering techniques … The computer was used for two reasons. First, it facilitated and sped up certain practical aspects of the design and pre-fabrication process. And second, it was a fertile source of compositional ideas and solutions, given the sort of compositional ideas and solutions I was interested in making.
