Open to ages 13 and up
Join us as we learn about exhibiting artist Alistair McClymont’s concepts and process, and new ways to explore the world through science and art. Participants will have a chance to engage with the artist in a special scientific process that will be documented in photographs and film. This is a wonderful opportunity for any students interested in science and art, and exploring their creativity in non-traditional ways.
Alistair McClymont graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2005 with an MA in Sculpture. He has shown work in exhibitions throughout England and Spain. McClymont’s practice incorporates a range of materials and practices that include sculpture, photography and video. His most recent works reproduce natural phenomena as a means of exploring scientific and philosophical ideas. The means of production and installation of the work often reveals the science behind it. At the same time, it acknowledges that there is something inherently unknowable and uncontrollable about the way in which naturally or artificially induced phenomena behave that is capable of inducing awe and wonder. You can learn more about his work and current exhibition at CAM Raleigh here: http://camraleigh.org/exhibitions/2013mcclymont/
