Waterfall Sculpture created using fluids simulation (particle based simulations. These particles are influenced in a multitude of ways by point-based nodes, known as daemons, which can simulate gravity, fluids, water surfaces flow and collision.)

I create sculptures based on sublime moments. These are moments that fill a person with amazement, awe, terror, astonishment, and silence.
They are also moments of pure beauty.

To see something we normally cannot see. To examine states where rest and motion exist together. To explore the boundaries of time.

My sculptures are created from software I have developed. I am influenced by the destructive impact within our environment. Uncontrollable power, unpredictability and cataclysmic extremes are the sources for my work. They inspire, fascinate and remind me of the constant fragility and beauty of human-life. Beauty can come from the strangest of places, in the most horrific events. My art addresses these notions of destruction and beauty, the collisions of opposites, fear and attraction, seduction and betrayal, from the most tender brutalities to the most devastating sensitivities. I oscillate between these opposites.

Using my own proprietary 3D physical simulation technologies, I have developed computational models for physical simulation, computer animation, and geometric modeling. Combining applied mathematics, computer science, and engineering, my work captures and freezes catastrophic situations as cathartic experiences.

My ongoing body of works examines the relationship between the simulated events that I create and their physical manifestation. These sublime moments are borne out of simulations and translated as art.

The body of work exists in three states: 3D simulations, sculptural moments and digital prints.

I create sculptures that are based on 3D physical simulation I’ve developed.
My ongoing body of works examines the relationship between the simulated events that I create and their physical manifestation.
Objects of a dense and innovative process, my works seem both real and unreal. I investigate the moment and the environmental situation that demarcates the boundary between an event and its representation.
Each simulation that I create is both animated as well as few frames are fabricated and materialized into physical sculptures, built layer by layer using a type of 3-dimensional printing.
