PDXspaces.ROOT "Empathic Vectors"
art informing theory
Building Technology Educators' Symposium, 2006.

These sculptural installations are a physical manifestation of a drawing, modeling and calculation process that has infused my academic and professional career with a raw energy that I highly recommend. Collaborations with students, performance artists, and consulting engineers remain fluid while simultaneously focused upon both ‘reality’ and the true empathic intent of designing space for passionate and visceral engagement.
