dc.description.abstractThe images which comprise the majority of these pages have been given the name Light Sculptures. They are not computer generated or hand drawn, they are photographs of the interaction between light and a reflective cylinder. Originally color transparencies, the Sculptures have been interpreted by the computer as inverted, greyscale images. What was once a black background is now white paper, and what were once lines of light are now lines of ink. The sculptures were synthesized through experimentation with the fundamental elements of architecture: Light, Material, and Geometry. Following the series of Light Sculptures are images of Objects through which materials, tectonics, and proportion were explored. The design and fabrication of each piece was guided by the intent to make something which functioned structurally, visually, and tactily as an integrated whole.en
