Anna Teiche

Powder-coated steel installation by Anna Teiche. In honor of Phil Bailey, dean emeritus of the College of Science and Mathematics, who founded and championed the Study 25–35 Hours Per Week principle: To succeed, students need to study two hours per unit each week, or the equivalent of 25–35 hours per week.

“25–35” was conceptualized and designed by student Anna Teiche, who completed all of the fabrication using on-campus resources and labs. Anna learned to TIG weld with instruction from Doug Brewster and welding assistance from fellow Art and Design student Tommy Stoeckinger.

The piece is a visual representation of the activities in an average student’s day according to the Study 25-35 principle. Each of the seven hexagonal panels represents a day of the week, and the smaller, painted hexagons symbolize the hours in a day. The forms are inspired by molecular diagrams used in chemistry, Dr. Bailey’s field of study. Just as chemical compounds can be broken down into separate elements, a student’s day can be organized into different areas of focus.

The artwork was commissioned by Kathleen Enz Finken, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs in honor of Phil Bailey.
