Daniel Stier and YES Editions present
A curious outsiders view into the world of science
... it’s almost a modern version of Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel’s Evidence project
– Erik Kessels
By viewing scientists at work in the lab as artistic, creative figures, photographer Daniel Stier has created a surreal series that shows researchers in a whole new light. – The Guardian
All are, deliberately, without titles – leaving us, the viewers, to form our own narratives and to speculate on how their outcomes might impact on our lives.
– Gordon McDonald
A visual study of unsung research facilities reveals the ingenuity—and occasional absurdity—of the machines used to pump out science and statistics on a shoestring budget. The resulting images feature a DIY aesthetic that toes the line between William Gibson-style cyberpunk novellas and experimental art installations.
– The Creators Project
I consider human endeavour in art and science to be a beautiful futility, and would go so far to say that it is mankind’s greatest achievement to find the space to countenance failure or defeat.
– Gordon McDonald
The lack of money in art and science is another parallel the 48-year-old is interested to draw out: despite the seriousness of their work, these labs are makeshift and unpolished. – Independent
