Reticulation: Structuring Materials and Metaphors

Exhibit by Posner Center intern,
Jesse Boardman Kauppila
Spring 2014


Reticulated, net-like structures inform the language we use and the objects we make. This exhibition examines the success and failure of reticulated structures, their birth and death.

Descriptions such as "tree-like" and "building block" help us understand complicated, interlinked phenomena, but they can also be limiting. By understanding how instances of reticulation create order from chaos we can better understand possible new avenues for their use in both the creation of new technologies and ideas.


Posner Center gallery and exhibits are open Monday through Friday from 1 to 4 p.m., except holidays and during designated VIP events. Phone: 412-268-7680
