My name is Daedalian Derks, I am a 2012 graduate of Kalamazoo College with a major in Art and minor in Classical Civilizations. Utilizing my background in mathematics and science, I have turned my attention to art; specifically installations and sculpture. My sculpture explores the themes of geometry and aesthetic appeal. I create pieces with kinetic elements, and my sculptures employ the natural environment to foster a sense of discovery in those who come across them. I do not wish to make a critique on society or culture with my art, and I am not attempting to make a statement regarding some abstract philosophy. My sculptures are intended to be aesthetically pleasing and enticing, and I hope that they inspire wonder and curiosity in those who see them.
