Kieth Tyson

Kieth Tyson's work demonstrates a fascination with scientific systems and also their limitations, ‘the difference between the scientific reductionist view and experience’. One theme is the idea of unpredictability. The Thinker is a powerful computer without any connection to a display that would provide a way of knowing just what it is ‘thinking’. This is contrasted with Tyson's own wall drawings, which make visible his own thought processes and responses to external events.

Ideas of accidents, alchemy and zooming on a vast scale, (in or out).
