Made from hot-rolled steel at 45" x 8' each, 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 path of each ellipse corresponds with adjacent panels suggesting the invisible connection between them.
IN FLUX brings together art, economic development, and property management organizations throughout the greater Phoenix area to provide opportunities for Arizona artists to create site-specific temporary public art installations in a wide variety of locations. The 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 as an initiative for temporary installations in vacant storefronts. The initiative has since continued to expand and gain momentum since its inception, increasing its positive impact on our local communities and our Arizona artists.
IN FLUX demonstrates a holistic approach to temporary public art projects through a showcase of Arizona artists presented within the context of viewing the Valley as one community. IN FLUX provides unique project opportunities for artists to expand their skills, innovatively apply their creativity, and garner public recognition for their work. IN FLUX offers new perspective on the connections between community organizations, city governments, local businesses, artists, and audiences.
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.

CODA: Collaboration of Design + Art
The global online community that celebrates design projects featuring commissioned artworks.
[ 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.
