GENERATION, 2006


Commissioned for the new Science Center at the Episcopal School in Alexandria Virginia this sculpture was designed to occupy an open space in a crosswalk that linked biology, physics and chemistry classes. The design was informed by current computer generated visualizations of molecular models and my continued interest in exploring the use of transparent membranes to articulate sculptural forms.

Generation was chosen as a title in that it referenced both the propagation of living organisms and the notion of a collective of individuals engaged in study at a given period. The form itself was also “generated” in that it began as a single spheroid shape that was the building block for the work. These forms were multiplied and configured to create a form suggesting two interlocked rings.
