Last week, we finished the install of our latest art piece Convergence! This hanging sculpture has been installed in the University of Iowa Seaman’s Center. Convergence is a three-dimensional array of engineering equations cut out of steel ribbons. The goal for the sculpture is to create a monument to engineering that abstractly visualizes the process of thinking. Each ribbon depicts a series of equations moving through space akin to a student working through these ideas in their mind. From a distance, the sculpture will appear to be a series of flowing bands, but as students look closer they will discover a litany of different symbols, letters, and equations.
We’re very excited to have finished this new piece! Be sure to stop by and see Convergence once the Seaman’s Center is open!
