Theory of Everything, 2006

Fernanda D'Agostino
(American, born 1950)

Location: Everett Community College, Everett

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Theory of Everything is part of artist Fernanda D'Agostino's six-part installation in the plaza at Everett Community College's Whitehorse Hall. Patterns and concepts found in physics inspired her playful forms. She notes, "My project uses these forms, drawn from contemporary physics, to create a series of metaphorical sculptures for the lower courtyard. In each instance, dynamic forms are captured in the act of transformation, evoking both the evolving understanding of contemporary physicists and the power of the creative act." In this way, the installation brings together the arts and sciences. Both of these disciplines are taught in Whitehorse Hall.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Everett Community College.
