Simon Beeson

Concepts
As both an artist and an architect, my concerns are with inhabited places. I am interested in the useful as well as the poetic. From small scale work to larger temporary or permanent public work or exhibitions. I concentrate on the ordinary things that anchor us and our feelings in the world. This has led me to education and community engagement as well as my own work.
Influences
Public art, public gathering places, seating, democracy, architecture
