About

I am an Artist / Architect with global experience . My credentials include licensing in New York, Florida, and Hawaii. The firm "artificial - construct" was formed as a result of the futuristic term associated with Science Fiction Cyberpunk novels by Authors Bruce Sterling and William Gibson, who coined the word cyberspace.

My interest is in the properties of spatial integration in a multi-dimensional context. The present work shown is a structural investigation into the synthesis of art and architecture. The avant-garde pieces shown at present are indicative of the confluence of artistic and architectonic research into forces and color - structural art. Euclidean geometry, platonic solids, 15th Century Flemish painting, and ontology are all influences.

The work here is an attempt to fuse cantilevered properties, gravity, point and distributed loads with an artistic vocabulary that shows connections to vertical & horizontal scaling.  As post-conceptual work the ideas take precedence over the traditional aesthetic.  An effect of integrating painting with sculpture has been attempted and realized.
