D.A.A.P.
The first world of virtual sculpture on line


D. A. A. P. is my virtual world of sculpture, initially designed at the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning at the University of Cincinnati. Since 1996 Daap has been used as an environment to test models of sculpture and other three dimensional projects by faculty, students, and guest artists. Fine Art Media Fundamentals, Modeling for 3 Dimensional Networking, and Computer Sculpture, were courses that I taught using Daap as a venue for the presentation of student work. Since 1997 the Intersculpt biennial exhibitions have been installed here in collaboration with Ars Mathematica.

Derrick Woodham; Sculptor, Professor Emeritus.

The gateway facing you as you enter DAAP at Ground Zero contains links to the college and School of Art websites.

Clicking here will take to the most recent models of sculptures I made while still resident in England, and during my first visit to New York, preparing for my exhibition with David Hall at the Richard Feigen Gallery in 1966. Around Ground Zero a display of my first sculpture in DAAP is installed. Here's my webpage of the original installation.

Walk southwest of Ground Zero for gateways to models of the Cinergy Atrium sculptures, and the Weston Art Gallery installation of "Twister".

"Sojourn" and "Hoops"; reconstructions of my panel sculptures designed in London and New York; the "Modular Set" installations produced while at the University of Kentucky; variations on "Fields" and the moiré screen sculptures fabricated at the University of Kentucky and the University of Cincinnati; a series of models developed from my set of seven geometric solids while at the University of Cincinnati, can all be visited starting at 6S 16W.

To the North West is the entrance sign for From Earth to Space 2010, and Intersculpt 2011, a combined exhibition of works submitted for DAAP from participants in the Ars Mathematica conference at the City of Science and Industry in 2010, and the Ninth Biennale of digital sculpture, at the Luc Monod Gallery, in Paris, France.

The site was the subject of an exhibition at The Contemporary Art Center in Cincinnati from September 4th, to November 7th, 1999. The work in this exhibition is supported in part by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council.
