Title: Hypocycloids and Spirographs.
Materials Used: Stainless steel spirographs on top of sandblasted and stained cement.
The formulas that describe the path of the hypocycloid (a circle rotating within another circle) are a backdrop for sculptural ‘spirograph’ forms that ‘are’ the forms created from the path of the hypocycloid. These motifs are designed as a poetic expression of the math and science exploration that takes place on the main campus of the University of Minnesota.
