Mathematical Sculpture

I think about math constantly, and I see and look for math in everything around me. Geometry in particular fascinates me, and I delight in discovering hidden patterns even in the most mundane of objects. By transforming often-overlooked household items into elaborate, mathematical sculptures, I hope to share this sense of excitement, curiosity, and beauty that a mathematical outlook has instilled in me. Maybe I'll even be able to learn and teach some math along the way.

Click the images below for larger pictures and mathematical descriptions of these works. Please contact me if you have any comments or questions. Also, if you construct one of these designs or a modification thereof, I would love to see pictures and/or hear your thoughts!

New sculptures are announced on my blog.
