Dan Tran
2021 Savageau Award Honorable Mention

Overhead view of 'sandbox' exhibit.

Dan Tran was awarded an honorable mention at the virtual opening celebration of the annual Arts and Humanities Graduate Exhibition at UC Davis for his thesis ”RECASTING: resilient, bio-based alternatives for concrete & ceramics”.

Central to his exhibit is the debut of Aperiodic Table, a bi-modular, reconfigurable sculpture in which each module is made from a different biogenic cement composite (BCC) formula. Its geometry is based on Penrose tiling, resembling the aperiodic micro-scale aggregate crystallization patterns which occur in cements. Like the periodic table of elements or community quilt projects, it’s a multi-phase, collaborative project which artists/scientists will add new BCCs to and reconfigure over time.
