Royal Academy of Art graduate Alistair McClymont is constantly exploring with the world of science and art through experimentations with  sculpture, photography and video.

McCloymont often creates artworks through collaboration with scientists. 

 "...he worked with a meteorologist at Manchester University to develop Raindrop, with a nuclear physicist at Kings College Hospital using their MRI scanners, and worked at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Washington using their ocean weather data and sunlight data.

His artworks such as The Limitations of Logic and the Absence of Absolute Certainty, a 10ft high man-made tornado, impressed the selection panel. "  The Arts Catalyst, 18/02/2014

As Alistair explains; “My artwork is a continuing process of discovery and experimentation.  Each piece follows the last in a continual journey of investigation into cultural and physical phenomena. The work is underlined by a search for what it is to be human. This might be our position in time and space on a grand scale, or singular observations on subjects that fascinate me. Each piece takes a small subject area and breaks it down into something understandable and perhaps beautiful.”
