The design is an experiment in using spirals in combination with radial symmetry to produce a unicursal knot. Usually I base knot designs like this off of circles and polygons, so this was a new challenge. I originally used this design for some cut paper stationery, shown here. Wanting to take things up a notch, …
Here I am on a podcast talking about art and music. It’s proof that I can ramble on for at least an hour. Thanks to Thomas Zachary for asking me to do this. The artwork I’m talking the most about can be seen on the Knot Theories page.

an exploration of partial-dimensional geometries My work is on display through March 26 at The Emporium Gallery in downtown Knoxville. Here is a brief explanation of the show: Knots are continuous lines twisted in such a way to give the illusion of lines overlapping in the same plane. Using a formalized system of knot creation, …
the quintessential knot
three braided knots as a listing band
Perfectly symmetrical listing bands are difficult to display because of one of those things that bring us all down, like gravity. But, if you could slice one (or really anything that’s hard to balance) up, you could stack the slices and create the illusion of a dimensional solid. The video explains a lot: The first …
