richard paton London, United Kingdom
I work in London as a 'fine artist' full time and I'm currently studying an MA in Art & Science at St Martins
My current practise explores the invisible force of magnetism from the quantum level to the cosmic. I have a particular interest in magneto reception in animals and the possibility that humans may also have a residual capacity. Invariably ferrous materials are combined with neodymium magnets which can take on multiple readings. I enjoy researching science to provide a firm footing to explore ideas with more poetic resonance using more traditional kinetic sculptural forms.
