At SUNY Oswego
This is a wood version of my sculpture Compass Points
, assembled at SUNY
I led this group construction at a Synergetics
in August 2006.
(I don't honestly know what "synergetics" is supposed to mean,
but to the extent that it means "cool geometric stuff," I'm for it.)
There are two shapes of parts. Here is the first set of 30
I had cut them from marine plywood and painted the edges black.
The first ten parts are connected together into a pentagrammatic
Screws join the parts to pyramid-shaped cedar connectors in the joints.
Here is the second set of thirty parts. Each crosses one of the other
parts at its center.
It is something of a tangle to understand how each pair of parts makes
In this inside view, you can see one of the connectors.
(They're square on the inside, but five-sided on top!)
The assembled Compass Points
sculpture is now on display at SUNY Oswego.
Previously, it had been displayed
in Billy Joel Park, Cold Spring Harbor, NY
I also had made a smaller
and I later made a large
