With the creation of each new piece I endeavor to bring my Natural Science education to an applied level that can be conceptually presented. My Thesis is concerning the determination of core properties with which we conceive the world and I find a good audience provides the best data in this pursuit. Exposure to proportionality, symmetry groups and notions of inflation/deflation and partitioning can lay the groundwork for a comprehensively nourishing educational foundation. Although there is a fair amount of theory involved in the Sciences it need not be memorized. Introduction of principles using physical manipulatives sets the stage for the subsequent presentation of theory perfectly. My most recent pieces deal with applications of aperiodicity and 5-fold symmetry as I believe these and concepts of spatial growth are enticing to most human beings adherently.
