Halfway to Infinity is a full gallery wall “drawing” made of 1/8 inch thick, laser cut MDF. Using the circle shape as a base, it attempts to reach the infinitely small by recursively reducing the diameter of a circle by one-half. Starting with one large 32 foot circle, three areas are created and divided into smaller and smaller inside/outside circle shapes with three pattern techniques. This is greatly inspired by Christopher Alexanders’ The Nature of Order book series where he develops and explains 15 properties of natural order.

Special thanks to the School of Architecture at RPI, Bill Bergman, William Lawson, and Joe Daniele for their help in making the project.
