"My inter-disciplinary sculpture, installation, time based work and writing is an exploration of hidden dimensions, connections and patterns guided by my daimon. The forms and processes I make try to stay within the play of Eros and Psyche and balance unruly Dionysius with rational Apollo. I am interested in the interplay of the masculine and feminine principles and how the recognition and reconciliation of these primordial forces can illuminate systemic connections between art and science. My work is conceptually underpinned by developments in quantum, chaos and complex systems theory that continue to revolutionize the human and physical sciences. In contrast to an out-dated, mechanistic worldview these developments envision an organic, interrelational and ceaselessly creative cosmos, imbued with value and agency, calling for our ethical engagement. Binary categories such as mind and matter, subject and object are reframed as vantage points within unified experience. Ideas informing this approach, for example: autopoiesis (Varela), holarchy, (Koestler) second-order cybernetics (Bateson), radical empiricism (James), elan vital (Bergson) and philosophy of organism (Whitehead) share an apprehension of humanity and nature as a divisible whole. The works are organised around geometric and iterative systems in which the parts are nodes in a network. For example Desiring Machine 2008 http://simeon-nelson.com/index.php/ desiring-machine/ and Cosmoscope 2017-19 http://simeon-nelson.com/index.php/cosmoscope-2/ display nested hierarchies of scale and dimension, lines, planes, volumes and time-based light and sound elements speak to each other - parts only make sense in relationship to each other and their constitutive whole. This gestalt has the characteristics of a complex adaptive system in the way the parts interact and different patterns emerge depending on the viewers position. I collaborate with musicians, programmers and scientists. I work with leading arts organisations like Artichoke and funders including the Wellcome Trust, The Arts Council and international agencies. I disseminate my work through exhibitions, public artworks, light festivals, performances, publications and lectures. My work migrates between public installation, concert-hall and gallery/museums."
