My artistic practice explores the interconnectedness and open-ended dialogue between art and science by combining scientific concepts, laws and theories from different disciplines with arts practice. Using free associations to discover the mirroring of scientific theory and concept between social, formal and physical sciences; including mathematics, architecture, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, astronomy, astrometry, chemistry, genetics and philosophy of time. Both art and science require imagination and original thinking, a sense of inquiry and concern about human nature & society. Whilst science investigates how the world operates in art this information is interpreted and expressed from a unique individual experience. My interests lie in the abstraction, curiosity and those complexities concerning the inter-relationships between science and art that have the ability to influence perceptions that lurk beneath known definitions. 

''The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.'' Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
