Underlying the creative practice of British, interdisciplinary artist Alistair McClymont is a deep concern for beauty and reason. Through artistic experimentation, discovery, and collaboration with scientists, McClymont questions the frontiers between art and science and what it means to be human in an era defined by big science and data driven research.
His work spans a variety of media from sculptural installation, painting, and photography, to video, new media digital art, and the publication of scientific research papers.
Many of his Artworks take the form of direct demonstration or experimentation. By isolating phenomena from the world, McClymont represents and re-evaluates them in novel creative contexts. Concepts are allowed to define the forms they take, and projects are designed to highlight the delicate, generative balance between order and chaos in the very systems used to create them.
