Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
These photographs mark the beginning of a long-term project documenting places of science and research, teaching and engineering, places that are unseen and unfamiliar to the majority.
My intent is to reveal the accidental aesthetics and beauty that exists in these spaces built with form and function as a priority, exploring an idea of art intersecting with science and vice versa.
Exhibiting within a health context reaffirms this relationship I am exploring between art and science. It provides the opportunity to share the impact these two worlds have on each other, intended or not.
Taylor Parham is a current Master of Design (Contemporary Art) student at Uni SA. He often spends his nights exploring the city and suburbs of Adelaide, photographing the mundane from a perspective that appears both familiar and unfamiliar. Of late, his attention has shifted towards combining two of his passions, the world of science and all its wonder and potential, with the creativity and expression that photography and art encapsulates. From exterior to interior his work highlights the unexpected beauty found in unexpected places.
