Large or small, always a love for detail.

Vision

Dynamical Systems

From an early appreciation of dance and flowing water, the discovery of diagrams recording the interplay of pendulums triggered most of my explorations of form and process.

Strange attractors
Space curves

Research

The desire to translate dynamic forces through their effect on pliable, freely twisting surfaces led to an in-depth investigation of the process of anticlastic sheet metal forming and the related field of minimal surfaces.

VR

During my research, I experimented with mathematical plottings of dynamical systems, and since 2017 the improvements in VR hardware and software prompted me to explire this in an mmersive, interactive medium that defies gravity.

Dynamical Systems

The interplay of centripetal and centrifugal foces is not always based on real parameters of a physical system, but can also be found in abstract mathematical plottings displaying ‘strange attractors’.

About

Artist/Sculptor

“For the past twenty years, my work has focused on the creation of sheet metal forms based on dynamic, orbital curves. This was initially inspired by a series of diagrams drawn by a device that records the interaction of two pendulums, a harmonograph. The diagrams create an illusion of ribbon-like surfaces that twist freely while retaining a sense of rhythm and symmetry.”
