The focus of my work deals with visual portrayals of information systems. I work with layers of data visualization, from charting to mathematical equations to scientific principles. In the Annuli Series a visualization based on the Fibonacci sequence, an irrational number sequence, encompasses the growth pattern found in the natural world. Using a mathematical representation of growth pattern is one layer of the idea of germination and here multiple equation visualization overlap. The work speaks to a core of growth on one level but also represents the way visual data can be represented overall. It reflects in itself a microcosm of our San Francisco community’s outputs: technological advancements, scientific discovery, computer-based sciences, and artistic pursuits.
