Dimensions draws inspiration from the study of the existence and characteristics of naturally occurring particles like atoms, photons and electrons in the field of quantum physics. Tan engages with materials like plastic cable ties, plastic tag pins, steel rods and neodymium magnets to investigate notions of symmetry and geometry that are found in nature. The sculptural works in the exhibition surface the inherent qualities of these materials, allowing their natural forms and inclinations to emerge. Dimensions alludes to Tan’s experimentations with forms and systems of construction, as well as explorations of different realms of knowledge and understanding. It explores the tensions between the natural and the engineered, order and deviation, and the transitions between the micro and macro.
