Schooling

University of Rhode Island, Graduate School of Oceanography

Narragansett, Rhode Island

2011

Description

Composed of abstract forms that reference the hull of an ocean vessel or the body of a fish, Schooling takes inspiration from its orientation in the Graduate School of Oceanography’s main atrium space opposite Narragansett Bay. Comprised of four separate forms, the sculpture’s layered forms repeat and aggregate into a wedge-like massing of more than two hundred individual sculptures evoking the schooling habits of fish.
