My thesis work and this paper explore the implications of making the theoretical physical. I made an installation comprised of three large sculptures with accompanying wall pieces. The shape of the sculptures is determined by a family of mathematical formulas that vary by two parameters. By making mathematical forms out of physical materials, I give the work as well as the concepts behind them agency, as well as a bodily connection to the maker and the viewer. They become a physical proof of ideas and concepts previously explored theoretically.
