Exhibit

The Autodesk Gallery at One Market in San Francisco
celebrates design — the process of taking a great
idea and turning it into a reality. With about
60 different exhibits regularly on display that showcase
the innovative work of Autodesk customers, the gallery
illustrates the role technology plays in great design and
engineering. Autodesk Gallery Ambassadors conduct gallery tours
as a sideline to their day jobs. The tours provide employees
with opportunities to practice public speaking in front of
small groups.

John describes his work as a fascination with spirals because
they represent that one can never return to the same place:
