Kevin Callaghan's work investigates ideas and conjectures about Utopian philosophy and science fiction. He wants to question and address the limitations of the human condition, revealing the simplicity of how we all travel consciously or unconsciously through the third and fourth dimensions of time and space. These conceptual goals directly reference his concerns with how and where science and the visual experience of art meet.
