Neil is an artist and ocean scientist based at The Briggait and University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. His work explores natural worlds at the margins of our vision and attention: deep-sea marine life, microscopic plankton, decomposers and detritovores from land and sea (millipedes, Antarctic krill, radiant sea slugs), and the nutrient-energy cycles they participate in. Since 2006 he has used computational methods to create intricate images via dynamic processes that borrow from weather models, biomechanics, and Sol Le Witt’s wall drawings. More recently he has taken up origami, playing with scale and animal forms at the border between realism and science fiction.
