At the heart of both art and science is a desire for the pleasure of understanding something new and of communicating this to others.
Through an award from a-n New Collaborations Bursary I'll be working with sea-salt harvesters Halen Mon over the next few months, to explore the potential of mineral salts in the creation of art.
The discovery of fresh aesthetic potential within unusual materials is paramount, alongside the correlation of the visual with scientific explanation. Results will present a range of possibilities for future developments, utilising these materials in conjunction with the science beneath.
Science will play a role which is both provocative and visually inspiring. My aim is to unite art with science to create something unique and precious; aesthetically beautiful whilst also enhancing understanding and extending our experience of the world.
I'll be charting my progress both here on this blog, and on the a-n website.
