The Superpostion

The Match Bonsai Project led me to read around the mathematics of nature and in doing so introduced me to Chaos, Fractal and Quantum Theories. This in turn led me to co-found The Superposition Arts/ Science/ Maker Network with sometime collaborate Dave Lynch. The Superposition was born out of a collaboration between artists, scientists and makers and a desire to see if a sustainable platform for cross disciplinary research and making, which is driven by the values of play, can contribute to an international discourse.  Our objective is to facilitate collaborations that result in the creation of awe inspiring new artworks, inventions and research.  The aim is to take what is ordinary in one field and make, through unveiling and inspiration, something tangible that is extraordinary to all.

Since 2011 we have collaborated with world-class technologists, scientists and research institutes to make artworks that allow audiences to experience and discover for themselves the beauty of scientific phenomenon.

The Superposition has been featured in New Scientist, Ars Electronica Festival, Wemakemoneynotart.com, UKs National Media Museum and are currently leading a project to collate Lab models with partners Future Lab (Ars Electronica), FACT Lab (Foundation of Art and Creativity Technology,  Liverpool) , The Lowery (Manchester) University of Leeds Creative Labs, Digital Media Labs and the Arts Council England.

Through Superposition I have been closely involved in the research projects that have resulted in permanent sculptures and events that have been seen by over 50000 people.  These include The Ghost Sculptures

 

A permanent interactive sculpture at DESY, a synchrotron in Hamburg  that produces the brightest light in the world.

Also a large kinetic sculpture in The School of Mathematics, a school at the forefront of fluid dynamic research, at The University of Leeds.
