Interested in complex curves and 2 dimensional planes through curvature or bending becoming 3 dimensional surfaces.

I am drawn to certain forms because I feel they can express a multiplicity of information yet in an abstracted way. I often use complex curves, waveform shapes and undulating recursive patterns as references and metaphors to physics and psychology. Waves are a spatial form that can relate to thought as in states of emotion, rhythm, and the cycle of life and it can relate to matter as in water waves, hills and valleys, radio waves, electrical waves, wave probability theory, and etc. It is a place where matter and thought can meet.

Math is inherent to the art. My interest in recursion, scalability and tiling combined with the process of computer modeling allows me to manipulate nurb surfaces into complex curvatures to discover interesting spacial qualities.
