The installation is made up of 14 individual frames, which I can assemble and layer in many different ways to create different patterns, shapes, and sizes. There are over 9000 hand placed nails in this display. This modular artwork was created with music in mind. I wanted to create a visual element that would synergize well with both the sounds and the vibrant energy of music events and festivals. I also wanted functional artwork that was easily portable. With this in mind, I designed the pieces for this installation on principles of symmetry and fractal geometry. The series of circle patterns are epicycloids, created from math equations that describe the motion of circles within circles. If you would like to see more of my patterns or purchase any of my artwork, I invite you to check out my website. www.residualglow.com 30% off promo code: “ArtPrize2018” Through October 15th for ArtPrize attendees.
