  Upper wall :  Untitled,  2013, bent aluminum sheets, thirteen parts, each composed of two 8.75" x 17.5", each catches the light differently. Bends rotate at 15 °  intervals.  Lower wall ,  Different But The Same,  2008, square carbon fiber extrusions, six parts, each 36 x variable x 12 in. The modular extension of a two dimensional pattern into the third dimension. Each piece is a loop.  Platform from left :  Untitled , 2010, one-Eighth size   basswood   models of four nine foot high structures. Four drawings, 2013,  Drawing From Photography    ( a remembrance ), graphite and acrylic fixative on paper. Photographs: David Allison.   
  Wall Left:   Untitled , 2015, 10 ft. diameter, inkjet prints mounted on board. Photographs of bent aluminum sheets in the form of a 24 hour clock.  Wall Right:   Three Equal Rectangles Defining Three Equal Squares , first version, 1996, 67.25 x 176 in, 1 inch gaffer tape. The title preceded the work as a problem which might or might not have a solution: It did, and 20 years after its' solution by trial and error it was discovered that the rectangles and all meaningful dimensions in the piece were part of the same fibonacci series.  Floor:   Twist,  2011 ,  paint on plywood, three parts each approximately 18 inches long.
  Wall left :  Three Equal Rectangles Defining Three Equal Squares , second version, 2016, 67.25 x 176 in, jute twine in three colors.  Wall right:   Untitled,  2016 ,  two bent steel rods.    Platforms left:   Untitled,  2010.   One-Eighth size   basswood   models for a series of nine foot high structures.
  On Wall:   Untitled , 2016, 1/8 in. bent steel rod, each U section 2 ft. on a side.  Against wall:   Untitled, 2016,  three paintings each in two sections (preliminary studies), vinyl paint on canvas.  On platform,   Presidential Material, 2017,  lead sheet covered in plastic cling wrap, three sections, each 18 x 36 In.
  Same but Different (Angeli),  1995, paint on plywood, height 24". The same object rotated. Developed from the chance mating two unrelated studies.   
  Untitled , 2005, proposal, four lengths of timbers with painted areas of the same four lengths arranged in four groups. The paint determines the number, grouping and arrangement of the timbers. Scale large but undetermined.   
  Object into Symbol , 1999 – 2012, Paint on aluminum panels, 5.33 x 31 ft: each panel 1 x 2 ft. An arrangement of all the shapes between a rectangular and cruciform shape that can be made by adding or subtracting corner triangles. In 2012 show "Figures and Grounds" at The Arts Club of Chicago, guest curator Anne Rorimer. This was conceived as a purely aesthetic object but turned out to have the curious mathematical property that every significant numerical relationship in it can be expressed by the term (3 to x power + 3 to y power). This discovery will change the order or orientation of several panels.
