“ Yet the timeless in you is aware of life's timelessness,

And knows that yesterday is but today's memory and tomorrow is today's dream.

And that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling

within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space.“

This clock composition is orderly, beautifully organized , using pattern as a major theme.

Bristol paper and foamcore.

Approximately 10” h.

Influenced by Salvidore Dali’s painting, “Persistance of Time”. The multiple images of clocks has you guessing which is the actual one. Clever!

Approximately 16”L x 12”H

Foamcore board and acrylic paint

“I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date. No time to say goodbye, hello, I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!” 

Clock combined with an original illustrated book, influenced by Alice In Wonderland. 

Approximately 12”L x 12”H

Foamcore board, bristol paper, acrylics.

Excellent use of pattern on this foamcore construction. The bright color is whimsical and upbeat. The artist explores space beyond the central form by extending the “arrow” and the other companion shape, opposite. It all makes for a delightful construction. 

Approximately 12”H, Foamcore, acrylics, and wood beads for pedestal legs. 

“Time Bomb”

This design is a head-turner more for it’s subject than it’s ability to show you clearly the time. The artist combines, both the digital and analoq clock. 

Foamcore, bristol paper, electronics. 

Approximately 14”L x 10”H

“Ski Lodge Clock”

( Wall Mounted )

Notethat artist cut ski and glove out of light weight magazine photo and glued them on the hands of the clock. further extending the theme. Note how the red second hand has been slightly modified to look like a ski pole. As long as the images are of light weight paper, the clock hands will move freely and keep time. 

Approximately 12”W x 12”H Foamcore and mixed materials.

Although it is not finished, and as far as the wall designs go, this design (above) explores much of what this course is about - exploring the third dimension. It has multiple layers of depth as well as surface contrast and variety of shapes. He had some painting left to do in the open mouth image and a few other places before he was unable to complete the project due to illness. It is has a variety of UNIFIED elements to entertain the eye and keep you interested. 

This one uses color as it’s main design element. And look at the exploration of spacial depth - actual birdcage, bookshelf and several layers of foamcore. Plus, those items are used as substitutes for numbers. Student uses colored shapes and their central position to lead your eye to the main center of focus. One design “flaw” is that the cental colorful design is sooooo strong that it is difficult to see the hands of the clock to tell the time. 

Bristol paper kayak on “second hand” keeps moving into new positions. Note depth created by layers of foamcore in mountains. Too bad they used Roman numerals for numbers - the style is out of character for the design.
