"Odin" is the product of a collaboration with Daniel Bosia and AKT II Engineers in London. Comprised of 240 element, with 2500 connections, the 13 ton sculpture fills its site in a dynamic interplay of form and void.
"Odin" was designed for its location, in a courtyard created by the construction of the Ho Interdisciplinary Science Center in 2005. The courtyard, 45' x 90' feet is one level below the main quad and is an ideal location for the sculpture, allowing views from many vantage points, exterior and interior
"Odin" is the culmination of a project, "Mathematical Methodologies for Art and Design", our team -- DeWitt Godfrey, artist; Thomas Tucker and Tomaz Pisanski, mathematicians; Daniel Bosia, architect and engineer – to engage with mathematical, computational and structural questions.

[ 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.
