MOCA exhibit

03.22.09 - 07.05.09

Boolean Valley—a collaborative project between potter Adam Silverman and architect Nader Tehrani—is a room-sized installation comprised of 400 cut, clay objects glazed in a colorful compound of cobalt, silicon, and carbide, that together form a topographic sculptural landscape. Tehrani, who uses advanced software and parametric modeling to design some of the most innovative buildings of our time with his firm Office dA, has created a Boolean logic that forms a field or “valley” that is inhabited by Silverman’s striking ceramic objects. Named after the mathematician George Boole, a Boolean logic defines where objects intersect.
