SEAN ALEXANDER FISHER






INFORMATION
    Sean Alexander Fisher is an engineer wearing pataphysical goggles.

With a background in engineering and having previously studied at The Glasgow School of Art and Design Academy Eindhoven his practice blends mechanical engineering and pataphysics. His fascination with metamorphosis and transformation is evident as he turns a critical eye towards humanity's use of the planet's finite resources. Through his sculptures, he seeks to reflect the dynamic nature of the world, emphasizing and responding to the absurd relationship society has with fringe engineering cultures. Furthermore, he explores the interrelations between ecology, economics, communities, and time.

Fisher also works as a photographer and writer, his work can be seen here
