The Razor's Edge: Sculpture as Matter and Pattern
Inaugural Professorial Lecture, Simeon Nelson. Thursday 7 March 2013 18.30 for 19.00 at The Fielder Centre, Hatfield Business Park AL10 9TP
Professor Simeon Nelson is a sculptor, new media and interdisciplinary artist working with convergences between science, religion and art and art in urban environments. After working as an artist in Australia and Asia he moved to the UK in 2001 and established a studio in central London.
Simeon produces optically ambiguous objects, installations, modular sculptural systems and videos whose underlying topologies are often obscured by intense ornament. These range from roadside sculptures to 'epiphytic' wall-works to projected architectural video. His work exists in and between the second, third and fourth dimensions. What you get is not necessarily what you see.
In this lecture Simeon will discuss ways in which he reformulates ideas in science and theology and how he work in collaboration with composers, scientists, psychologists and others on recent projects in galleries, hospitals, churches and other sites in the UK, Europe and Australia.
