Tête-a-TêteFallsis a two-part, two-sided sculpture constructed of split-face granite block to be sited in the North lobe of the GoodaleParkLake, Columbus, Ohio, USA. Water pumped to a trough at the top of the form will cascade over weirs on the interior sides of the structure creating twin horseshoe waterfalls. On the backsides, it will flow over and down the two stepped, beehive-shaped forms creating different and variable water displays on all surfaces. Central to this concept is the desire to create a year-round water feature. Tête-a-TêteFallsis designed as much for the winter months, when ice will form in constantly shifting and unpredictable ways, as it is for the other seasons.
For the past year or so I've been working on renderings and models for the artist Malcolm Cochran. The piece was featured in a recent article in The Columbus Dispatch. This project and some of the other work I have been doing for Malcolm features as a case study on the new SimplyRhino website.
I will be talking about this and other projects at the UK launch of Rhino 4.0 at Metropolitan Works in London on 9th November 2006.
I am exploring a hybrid form of art and design practice through the use of computer-based design and fabrication tools. I am interested in experimental objects and spaces that are dynamic and responsive and seek to challenge perceptions, expectations and established behavior.
