Long Description:
"By Definition"

Don Ian Dickson and Amy Doolittle

Located at the Science and Engineering Building at University of North Florida in Jacksonville, "By Definition" was installed in April, 2004. Chosen as one of four finalists from 80 applicants, the team presented their concept in mid-May of 2003. The winning concept is a 21 foot tall triangular column incorporating abstracted formulas, symbols and organic elements from the chemistry and physics disciplines combined with engineering components such as electrical schematics, pulleys, stress failures, roads and bridges. Inlaid into concrete are names of scientists and engineers as well as a separate, raised definition of engineering."
