Keith Tyson’s work display a universe of objects, paintings, photographic works and installations that reveal elements of our reality constructions and explanation models inmaterial form, using a wide variety of artistic styles. Philosophy, science, technology, language and description patterns for forms of nature and culture are all ordering structures for reality. Tyson shifts them through a number of transitory formations and an infinite list of possibilities in his laboratory. He realizes works that relate chaos and order, space and time, possibility and actuality to the individual viewer as he or she stands confronted with a landscape showing the simultaneity of micro and macrocosm. ”Tyson’s project is Faustian in many ways. My suggestion is not of some devilish pact (although that may explain his extraordinary work-rate.) Instead, it is a measure of his immersion into a dynamic process that includes almost every mode of artistic expression, a process which assimilates all in its unending growth. Like Goethe’s Faust, Tyson uses Development not simply to create money, fame or power (although they may be useful by-products) but as a resource for further Development, for experience, action, creativity.“
