Every Cog and Wheel

Installed at Trinity University in April 2014, this temporary piece resides below the back staircase of the Dicke-Smith Art and Music building. Scientific papers and handwritten notes discuss genetics and statistics litter the floor. More of these papers transform into various paper airplanes suspended in the oppressive space. As a conceptual installation, the planes are ideally placed to suggest the development, dispersal, and interaction of ideas. Referencing Aldo Leopold’s quote, “To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering,” the piece emphasizes the importance of cross discipline understanding.
