"With the 'Wave Field' in Michigan, it was for an aerospace engineering building and I had no idea what I was going to do. My site could have been in the building they were building or outside. And I just read up on aerospace and flight for three months and then came up with the idea of the 'Wave Field,' which is basically a book image of a natural occurring water wave that came about because flight requires resistance, and that led to turbulence studies, which led to fluid dynamics."
