Ellipses-IN FLUX_Cycle 7- Public Art Award
IN FLUX initiative, currently operated through the strategic partnership of
four organizations in Chandler, Gilbert, Scottsdale, and Tempe was
launched by Scottsdale Public Art in 2010.
This project is in process, selected in November 2017, for the Miller Plaza location,
Scottsdale, AZ. Scottsdale Public Art has initiated the agreement and the piece will be in production and installed by end of February 2018. Ellipses is a series of three
monolithic steel panels that represent the fundamental physical relationship between
objects in space. The three individual pieces contain a series of orbital curves.
The three individual pieces contain a series of orbital curves. The path of each ellipse corresponds with adjacent panels suggesting the invisible connection
between them. My interest in science, specifically astronomy and physics, have fueled my desire to represent this phenomenon in a static installation which reflects the relationship between objects in space and the gravitational and electromagnetic effect they have on one another. This relationship is evident on the smallest of scales at a molecular level and the largest of scales on an astronomical level.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
