Located at the stairwell of Building 3, Dis(Course)4 is a Festival of Art, Science, and Technology (FAST) installation created by graduate students Craig A. Boney G, James R. Coleman G, and Andrew J. Manto G in Course 4 in April 2011. The structure is composed of hundreds of aluminum pieces that are fastened by zip ties and supported by steel cables. This photo emphasizes the repetition of the elements through the use of point lighting and symmetry. A small aperture is chosen to ensure a large depth of field. The white balance is intentionally skewed to add warmth to the otherwise white installation.
