Composed of abstract forms that reference the hull of an ocean vessel or the body of a fish,
Schooling takes inspiration from its orientation in the Graduate School of Oceanography’s main
atrium space opposite Narragansett Bay. Comprised of four separate forms, the sculpture’s layered
forms repeat and aggregate into a wedge-like massing of more than two hundred individual
sculptures evoking the schooling habits of fish.
To reflect the work of this school.
