I use drawing-based media to examine processes of scientific representations of the natural world. The work in this exhibition stems from research in crystallography; the study and mapping of atom arrangements within a solid. It is fascinating how crystallographic diagrams form endlessly repeating grids of complex symmetries that translate the natural world into the visual and mathematical language of geometry and pattern.
The drawings in the series Patterns from an invisible world take a number of complex crystallographic grids as their starting point. By using the intersections of the grid lines as a template, I map a random series of points in space to create new maps of an undiscovered invisible world.
