The world is expanding and collapsing simultaneously – tiny particles are floating around. Dust grains.

K Maclean’s research shows a way to transform memories and emotions into tiny, vivid images, so small that they float on waves in space like orbiting particles. Their path only comes into being because we observe them. We define the world through our observation. Reality presents itself as a sea of possibilities with calculable probabilities for their realization.

In his installation, the artist primarily works with found materials and combines the celebration of chance with the idea of sustainability.

What emerges seems like an ode to life, as subtle and careful as every single grain of dust has its meaning. The observer changes the world he looks at by looking at it.

We can never fully understand this, but we can acknowledge it.
