Ben Tyers creates installations and kinetic sculptures, frequently inspired by his avid interest in the natural world, and attempts to recreate the procedures by which it operates in his art. Tyers uses technology to imitate evolutionary processes, and to explore the ways in which natural rhythms such as breath affect human beings, both physically and mentally, in order to provoke a thoughtful and reflective state in the mind of the viewer. His work, while visually subtle and understated, is carefully constructed and draws heavily upon scientific and engineering theory.
