dead temple visions 23Xtile
This is a wall tile recovered from the excavated temple. The room was a small enclosed space with no windows to the outside. The gas lamps we were using revealed the dimensional texture of the tiles. A relevant offering was placed in its stead upon removal. This pattern tiles a plane divided by either triangles…

semitechnical description and examples of a new way to use spacefilling curves

cube sliced by surfacetiling curve
mirrored nets make interlocking cube fragments

perspective hex
Eight knotted hexagons cover the surface of a cube in a pattern which is identical on each face of the solid.

branching unknot
Two unknots are arranged vertically above a charred wood base. The shape of the metal makes selfsupporting convex and concave arrangements possible.

multidimensional hex knots
Two sets of interlocked hexagonal rings traverse three color fields.

unicursal polygonal tercet
Stippled paint creates a unicursal knot design. The aggregation of dots suggests straight lines not present in the artwork. This single component is connected end to end with two rotated copies to create the knot. Doubling the individual segments of the knot design does not disrupt the over / under pattern that knot diagrams have.

tri unknot
A line broken by an inner negative space rotates to form an unknot, a continuous line with no overlapping. The component used as the basis for this piece, as well as the resulting structure, can be unraveled to form a loop. Tri Unknot was on display at the McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS) in 2023.

layered multi polygon knot
A group of three similar polygons rotate to form a knot. Multiple glass layers show colors, the knot itself, and a faint outline.

knot tiling trianglefaced polyhedra
A single shape tiles the faces of all three equilateral trianglefaced regular polyhedra with knots.

exploded hexahedron tiled with a planefilling curve
A single line bisects a hollow cube into two mirrored sections.
