Icositetragon of Northwestern Station in Chicago

Originally titled “Sears Tower Quilt” when I started making it, I realized that the Citicorp Center created an interesting artifact in it’s reflection, so I went with it- 24 times to be exact. It creates the white “circle” in the center. However, in the process of making the polygon, the Sears Tower was pushed out of the frame and I opted to name it Northwestern Station Quilt. I’ve chosen to not use corporate naming convention (aka “Citicorp Center Quilt”) because over time the name will change (if the building is sold or comes under new management), and I’m betting the colloquial naming will last longer.
Lower Manhattan Quilt #2

I had to zoom out a tad to get the circle to work out. Of course this causes a decrease in the spatial resolution of the tessellation, but since the first map of the series was made at exactly .6m, I figured I could get away with making this one a bit more abstract. Oh yeah, I decided to go with “Lower Manhattan Quilt” :) I think it geographically fits better.

Adams Morgan – White House Quilt

Sucks… I like the template, but I don’t like the way this came out. The Adams Morgan aerial photography looks a bit bleached out compared to the White House imagery. Yet what is important about this rendering is that I used two different types of spatial resolutions and I used two different types of objects. The White House imagery is mapped on to 4 rotated infinite planes (object one) and on the Adams Morgan imagery is mapped on about 40 pyramids grouped and rotated in a circle (object 2). The first time I used the White House pattern like that was with DC Lenz #4, and this is only the second rendering I’ve used the Adams Morganimagery in. I don’t think I’ll be using them together again.
Superdome Quilt – 1st Derivative

This rendering mrks a subtle departure from my standard quilt template. For this rendering I rotated the infinite planes at 22.5 degrees, and the result is a piece that is only symmetrical on one axis. Normally the quilts have numerous lines of symmetry that allow the print to be viewed nicely from multiple perspectives.
Yet the stars look amazing and draw my eyes to them first.
It’s 14 stars for 14 colonies- the original 13 and Washington, DC :-P
Up next the Bay Saint Louis Bridge. Oh how you folded!….
Like the rest of my Katrina aftermath renderings, the proceeds from this print will go to support the relief efforts.

I have noticed that quite a few DC area artists have put up their art for sale to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Using a public domain satellite image from NASA’s MODIS satellite, I created a piece I call “Katrina Quilt.” I am going to make five 30″ by 20″ prints available for sale at $200 each. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail. I will be making another rendering of the satellite image shortly
I have another rendering for sale for hurricane relief efforts, its called Abstract Katrina.
Wow. This is probably my favorite animation yet. Its not technically special, it’s just fun as a hell to watch. Using Quicktime Pro, I can set it loop back & forth and I’ve spent the last few minutes marveling at my latest creation. If you look closely you can see the White House replicating into a perfect circle.
Up next, I’ve got some imagery of Prague, Sioux City, Iowa, a few topographic maps (a new dimension to Geospatial Art!), and even a subway map of Moscow I want to geographically exploit. Fun.
Yeah for the 9 day weekend- I took next week off!
