I started experimenting with geometry at City College of San Francisco, first with drawings and then models. One bit of inspiration came in the form of a poster in a hallway of UC Berkeley's math department, displaying a relationship between the golden ratio and the icosahedron. Finding and expressing hidden relationships between abstract objects might serve as a good definition for mathematics, and my work attempts to realize those relationships visually.
The Catalan numbers count notoriously many collections of objects. This diptych represents two collections of 14 objects each (14 being the fourth Catalan number), with a color-coding that gives a bijection between them.
