"Through an exploration of perspective, complexity and scientific investigation I create imagery that reveals, explains and connects us consciously to the ambiguous and unknown".
We are all artists whether we be a creator of images or a creator of science. Working in the 'grey space' or the 'space in-between' art and science and other disciplines can be challenging. Accuracy of science and the abstraction of art can only intertwine as one when we overcome the fear of those anomalies and revel in the beauty of its ambiguity. Inaccuracies and ambiguity after all feed our enquiring minds, whilst the experience of failed images and failed science offers new direction and new results. To narrow our field of expertise narrows our imagination, our creativity and space to learn.
If we have been lucky enough to dip in and out of the art and sciences or a mix of disciplines during our careers, we might describe ourselves as 'multi - or intra- or inter- or anti- or trans- disciplinary'. Each description suggesting a new category and a separation of work. Being careful about how we describe the future of collaborative work will ensure we work openly in the present and through which we can anticipate our future.
My experience of working collaboratively has been only one of success. Its led to development of research papers, imagery for PhD research, front covers for journals, animated videos for exhibition and extended my knowledge and ability to delve deeper into a variety of subject areas.
