Megan Geckler: "No Chance To Move Backward And See" - Installation Views
Megan Geckler creates site-specific installations using construction flagging tape, mathematical calculations, and color theory. Geckler’s installation at UMOCA, “No chance to move backwards and see”, transforms the gallery space, inviting the viewer to take an exploratory journey through chromatic examples of architecture, design, sculpture, and painting. Drawing from geometric illusionism and principles of design, “No chance to move backwards and see” presents woven wall murals, a custom sculptural extension of architectural elements, several modular sculptural works, and nine tape ‘paintings’ that offer a Josef Albers-esque color study of the colors of the installation. On Display in the Street Level Gallery.

2022 - Scissors Congruence - Oral Presentation
This conference explains where some mathematical formulas for geometrical figures come from, it speaks several cases such as rectangles, algebraic identities, pythagorean theorem, etc. and discusses the question "What do we still have to learn from studying this?". This presentation uses figures and images to exemplify algebraic principles and mathematical concepts. This is a video of the presentation, "Scissors Congruence" given at the 2022 Undergraduate Projects & Research Conference at Salt Lake Community College. The presenter: Robert Morelli.
