Materialised as exploratory sculptures and drawings, Michael Charles Neumann’s practice departs from an intimate interest in natural phenomena, material characteristics, and open source technologies. These object-human interactions, seen through temporal and philosophical lens, deconstruct and reinterpret schematics of evolution, geometry and land survey maps.

In Neumann’s practice both intuition and scientific methodologies play an extended role in developing a novel understanding of natural dynamics in the age of computability. In-depth field surveys at Angkor Wat, Joshua Tree, Dollar Stores and freeway off-ramps reveal physical and recorded assets that are cultivated in the artworks as a subtle evidence of the world that is happening outside and beyond human attention and understanding.
