Dan Walwin's works pay acute and visceral attention to details and detritus, channelled and contained inside hybrid and potentially uncomfortably ill-fitting forms. These evoke associations with pop culture, scientific research and speculative fiction, while employing scale and imitation as means to structure the atmosphere of a viewer’s encounter with the work.
