Waichulis Form Box

Waichulis Form Box**
(No Longer Commercially Available)

The Waichulis Form Box is a learning device that contains several basic geometric solids, or ‘forms’, that can be configured in a variety of ways to compare and contrast the way light describes them.

Companion Text Sample

*Companion Text CD-Rom files are in PDF format. A Windows or Mac computer, Adobe Reader, and printer capable of producing text and graphics required.

For more information on the Ani DVD Core Program: The Language of Painting, download the Press Release PDF.

Individual forms may be removed from the box for isolated study. Six pieces within the box, the Sphere, Sphere-housing block, Cone, 2 Cone-housing pieces, and a Rectilinear/Curvilinear Cubical solid, are made from a highly durable urethane casting resin that has been formulated with an anti-UV element. The resin forms a bright white polymer selected because of its excellent toughness, stability and ability to handle mild solvents. The seventh piece (The Cylinder) is made from a piece of durable Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).

Form Box Surface Variations

*The Form Box is cast and refined by hand. While there is a great amount of consistency of the overall forms, expect some surface variation due to the casting process. The latest version includes an updated plastic sphere with less surface variation.
