The “Ornaments Of Logic” display assembly was built by Scott Pennington to my design, which he refined quite a bit in the just-in-time construction process completed in about two weeks. Maria Mendoza also collaborated with me on helping to develop this design, as a means to display 32 of my 12″ square paintings in the atrium of the Mudd Hall chemistry building at Johns Hopkins University for the TEDxJHU event, a free-standing display to bring a central focus to the art.

The wood and aluminum construction echoes the architectural components overhead, and the paintings can be rotated on their aluminum rods to show various lighting conditions and enable the viewer to interact with the art.

This piece is six feet tall with a five-foot diameter base, and although it seemed quite large when we assembled it in my studio, it comes across as just substantial enough in size to occupy this spacious lobby area, complemented by the display of twelve mid-sized paintings hanging on the curved wall in the background.
