Our balls are going global!



http://sites.middlebury.edu/announcements/2019/06/25/institute-displays-global-impact-piece-by-henry-simonds/

In a long planned effort, this piece, Global Impact—which is a portfolio of Sphaeralogical motion capture images—is finally being distributed around the world.

Very excited and grateful to Middlebury College for this acquisition.

Mark Potter!! A SPHAERAOLGICAL PIONEER!!




Hey Folks,

I just learned that my high-school art Teacher, Mark Winslow Potter, was integrating Super-Balls into his work as early as 1982.  This man was a inspiration to me and helped me to push through my self-conscious blocks and find new ways of seeing.  I swear that I never knew of this work, nor had seen it.  I love that - almost 30 years later! - I found similar inspiration in these amazing spheres.

Awesome!
