Spacecraft is a functional art structure made of painted wood and glass. It was designed as a special place in which to explore the beauty of three dimensional complexity, generated from the manipulation of a simple cube form. A wood frame that outlines the perimeter edges of the cube supports an eight-foot by eight-foot glass enclosure made of four sliding glass doors, a glass ceiling, and a glass floor. Each face of the cubes frame has an additional seven square frames attached. Each of these has been rotated the same distance from one corner and connected together into six identical sections. Each of these sections has been connected to the cubes six faces in different directions. As a result, the basic glass cube appears to be spinning apart in every direction, and fragmenting the space in unexpected ways, as each of the frame sections are frozen in time. The bottom section is placed on four legs that raise the structure up off of the ground, and six steps lead the visitors up into the structure.
Spacecraft is part of a series of structures that attempt to create new and exciting forms, through the unique manipulation of simple systems, which generate extreme and unexpected complexity.
