'Between Worlds' Documentary and Book Kickstarter Campaign



If you've been following me for the past few months you'll have heard about this project I've been working on with fine art waterscape photographer Jason Henthorne. It's been an interesting journey, testing my ability to adapt to the moment and innovate in my artistic capacity. Check out the video- it's cool!

The 4 month project has been captured by Emmy award-winning film-maker Brad Kremer. What started out with the intention of a short film has turned into a feature length documentation of the story behind the photos. It's a look at everything it took to make the images, which were the original goal of the project. The film goes on location to beautiful rugged northern California beaches to watch the process unfold and gives a feel for the lives of the artists.

With the primary work trips finished, what remains is secondary filming and then post-production. For this final effort we have created a Kickstarter campaign, whose goal is to complete the film as well as a coffee table book.

If you're intrigued by the project, we'd love your support! Here are 3 ways we could use it (any one of these will be so appreciated!!):
Visualize us easily reaching our goal and the art extending its magic into many more hearts!
Share the link with friends and family who you think would also appreciate what we've been up to
Pledge to the Campaign (and receive cool gifts!)

Thank you for checking out our project! And thank you for your ongoing support!

'Substructures' - Public Demonstration Artwork

It's been a while since I last did a public art-making in San Francisco and wow- what a great day to do it. A huge crowd gathered to watch the process on a gorgeous, sunny afternoon. My buddy Jonathan Clark made a film of aerial footage that is really well done!

Interview for Scholastic Math Magazine

This is the full interview with Scholastic:

1. What first inspired you to use the coastline, rather than a more traditional medium, as a canvas?
My background is in science, not art. I'm coming to art via my exploration of the world rather than initially setting out to make art. Quite unexpectedly I happened upon how great a canvas the beach can be. That, in turn, prompted me to explore what was possible art-wise.

Construction Guide- Icosahedron

The icosahedron is a platonic solid. Platonic solids are 3-dimensional shapes the sides of which (also known as 'faces') all have the same shape. The icosahedron has 20 faces, each a triangle. In the version I made, shown below, I stylized the icosahedron by curving the faces and adding an inner line. Read on to learn how to make this shape.
