Biotic Oscillation

The rhythms of the natural world are fascinating. An expanding universe overcome by its own gravity would oscillate, pulsing between destruction and creation — eternally thrumming, unsure of just how it got there in the first place. A biotic oscillation poses that question to life: fluctuations between being and unbeing, where the environment and the organism become each other. Where an object is defined by its origin, and by where it must return. Where a space is dictated by what’s inside, and its contents order its bounds. Where a cage can’t exist without a captive, and the bars are never lost when flying free.

“Biotic Oscillation” has been shown in the Rubin Frankel Gallery, YesOuiSi Gallery, and Brush Gallery in the greater Boston area.

is an interdisciplinary art and science project made in total collaboration with Matthew Forkin, a fellow artist and engineer.  It showcases the remarkable visual and physical properties of ferrofluid, allowing the viewer to manipulate the fluid in the display tank with powerful magnets.  A live video projection from a perpendicular viewing angle is shown on the ceiling, providing a full exploration of the fluid’s behavior.

is a series of four sculpture and installation pieces exhibited in 2007 in the List Art Center in Providence, Rhode Island.  These works, while not meant to emulate the paintings of Piet Mondrian, are intended to be a tribute and an exploration of the ideas he introduced.
