McClymont often creates artworks through collaboration with scientists, for example he worked with a meteorologist at Manchester University to develop Raindrop, with a nuclear physicist at Kings College Hospital using their MRI scanners, and worked at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Washington using their ocean weather data and sunlight data. McClymont's previous work includes, The Limitations of Logic and the Absence of Absolute Certainty, a 10ft high man-made tornado. He describes his investigations into various phenomena and ambitions to expand this practice: “It has become clear to me that my practice is closely entangled with the methodology of scientists. I see a close link with the way artists and scientists view the world, the process of engagement and discovery that drives their work. It is important to me to continue to seek out and talk to scientific institutions and scientists themselves to drive my own personal investigation into phenomena that has become a key part of my practice.”
