At the beginning of 2008 I embarked on a series of art experiments, often using domestic situations and objects to explore certain scienctific notions such as the orbit of atoms and stars. Through these experimentations I realised that these notions are already being pursued, this made me turn my attention to other possibilities for examination, things such as ESP, UFO’s, time travel, remote viewing and ghosts.
So I decided to dedicate myself to exploring these areas through the formation of an organisation to conduct a series of investigations into these unseen worlds. With the creation of the Artistic Research and Special Experimentation Organisation I embarked on a series of ongoing projects such as The All We Have is Now Project which explored the possibility of meeting people from the future, The Valis Project an attempt to contact an alien race and The What is the Light Project which explored the link between the Big Bang and love.
The evidence of these projects manifest themselves in various forms, from videos, photographs, drawings and installations these, along with the relevant research, is then presented to the public. When the evidenced gathered by the ARSEO is presented to the public, not only is the public engaged with making decisions about the evidence on display they are often required to interact with the project, thus completing them and joining us here at the ARSEO in the exploration into the unseen world.
