Stuart McCloskey

Stuart McCloskey is a photographic artist currently exploring the relationship between photography and science, gradually investigating how the photographic image has been utilised to translate complex and abstract scientific ideas to the uninformed but curious viewer. Science is thought to be rigid, defined within a fixed set of rules and limits, devoid of creativity. However, at a closer look science begins to become a hugely imaginative field full of ingenuity and creative resolutions. Stuart is interested in how the two seemingly polarised disciplines can collaborate to broaden our understanding and knowledge of the human experience.
