As astronomers discover more about our universe, they find it is often stranger than we could have imagined. David Jensz’s practice involves the construction and fabrication of sculptural objects that reflect on the patterns that underpin the intricacy of life. The simplicity in his work alludes to greater complexity and he views the work as fragments of a much larger whole. In practical terms, Jensz contemplates the world by engaging with physical materials: his working process is a journey from the known to the unknown.
