An eccentric sculptor works in the space between art and science. Nearing the end of his life, he looks back on a lifelong obsession with patterns. Never formally trained in mathematics, he studied mud cracks, bee hives and tree bark to create a geometric system that resulted in his art.

Carl and Susan met as teachers. Their chemistry is palpable as Susan recalls the moment she first saw him and, later, the flavors and textures of the picnic lunch Carl packed for their first date. She describes the man she eventually married as a brilliant problem solver drawn to the rules of physics. Her memories illustrate the life they built together, and the ways that it changes when Carl is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Moment to Moment beautifully renders the tenderness and resiliency of their love story. Navigating the debilitating effects of the disease, Carl finds purpose in removing the copper wiring from televisions. Susan lovingly creates sculptures with the delicate coils, holding on to the profound connection that remains in their lives.
