Exploring spaces at Scitech WA as planning for my Artist in Residence work is under development. A few days to meet with the amazing team of staff and enjoying seeing the exhibits full of visitors – so much fun.
Will keep posting about the project especially as we move nearer the date to the launch. Had a great look around all the spaces and saw a super cool exhibition about to open. I had a special peek of the exhibition behind the scenes. Lots to think about…………
Just had to share one of my new images of Western Australia, part of the ‘Under the Surface’ mining project, residency at Scitech Discovery Centre 2016.
Very excited to be taking up this overseas appointment in Taiwan having worked on many collaborative projects there over the years. This will be an opportunity to develop international research , artistic opportunities, projects and international networks.
Looking forward to be working and living between Taiwan and home in Australia, continuing my passion for science, arts and technology. Happy to hear from artists interested in developing research projects in these areas.

The Creatives gallery showcases artists, designers, and creative technologists whose work has been informed or influenced by science and technology. Artists create, shape, reflect, and define our society — their contribution is critical to any human rights movement. This gallery seeks to recognize the critical role of artists and creative practitioners in imagining and realizing a more gender equitable future.
Great to be part of the exhibition – Thank you

Post-it sketches reflect my thoughts and capture snippets of my daily life. They have been something that sit in the background to my artist practice – more of a distraction to what I am actually doing and sometimes an enjoyable gift to send a friend and share with family. Drawing has always been part of my life but I never really regarded any of these sketches as an influence until I was in my final year at art school. It was then that they became part of my work having gained the confidence to put them out in public. A tutor had seen one of my letters that I was writing to a friend and asked about all the sketches that I was adding into the letter and asked if this was something that I enjoyed. Much of my earlier work show signs of this approach as I fluctuated through various stylistic methods to tell a story – more often to deflect the viewer from the real story or the images being personalised. A bit of a contraction really as everyone knew they were my drawings.
I still add drawings to my letters, enjoying a fountain pen and smudging my sketch with my fingers. These days I do not write as many letters as I would like to send as email is so much quicker and I guess that is why I started using the post-it notes as they are always on my desk. A thought will be put straight onto the note and then my iphone would send it off to a friend or add it up to my facebook page where I enjoy sharing the sketches with friends. I always placed them on my personal page rather than my art pages as I still wanted to keep them close, especially as they tend to be about my friends or my personal life.
So why make them more public? Interestingly, they have become part of my research study in a discussion relating to the framing of ideas. More so…… it has been great to receive lots of feedback from folks and that is as enjoyable for me as sharing the sketches. I do not have many early ones as they were all sent out in letters – you never know they might still have a few around if the content was directly about them or if they are as as much a ridiculous a hoarder of things as me.
Science Inspired Designs by Eleanor – five in the Collection were previewed at FASHFEST. All designs are extracted from her research interests in science art (CSIRO + ANU), deconstructing the complex 3D images and reusing in beautiful repeat pattern. Artworks are available direct from Studio E L E A N O R G A T E S T U A R T Australia – likewise for other design projects and commisssions.

Rachel wearing ‘Jewels’ at the Finale at FASHFEST
Amazing ‘insects’ hit the catwalk in FASHFEST, as the science inspired insect prints were proudly showcased in the Scientist fashion theme. Almost ironic as the designs are 3D insect body maps … rewrapped as swimwear and stunning in their appearance. Five designs were selected from Eleanor’s collection, images that form part of her research at CSIRO (Computational Informatics Division) and the ANU (CPAS) reflecting her focus in science+art+technology.
Using Eleanor’s fabric designs, the swimsuits are then designed by British fashion Designer, Shelley Campton and printed in collaboration with JETS Digital.
Working on the ‘Scientist’ theme for FASHFEST has certainly thrown a different perspective on the research I normally undertake in my science art focus and one that is truly exciting. Seeing images take on a new aesthetic in the form of fabric design and applied to the FASHFEST scientist theme for swimwear is an interesting direction.
Admittedly the lab coats have crept into the spotlight and to be honest an image I have not attached to my work before given it is usually the science itself I have been focused on. However, seeing the fun that the public has in wearing the lab coats and taking on the persona of scientist in the learning environment at CSIRO Discovery Centre captured my attention.
Although the lab coats only have a few seconds appearance as the science inspired fabric prints and swimsuits are the main feature, I am already thinking about the potential of them in future concepts. Collaborators are most welcome.
3D Grassland goes fabric for FASHFEST
The 3D animated ‘Grassland’ sequence provides the stunning design for one of the FASHFEST contemporary swimwear. The palm beetle and cicada (from the Australian National Insect Collection, CSIRO) are amongst the featured ‘stars’ in the designs, although they might be rather hard to find in the sheer brilliance and pattern of the printed fabric.
The other four designs are full of colour as you can imagine with such beautiful Australian insects as inspiration. These will be revealed on the night at FASHFEST.
There are also a suite of artworks from Grasslands as shown on Studio E L E A N O R G A T E S T U A R T Australia.

SCIENCE+ART+FASHION … CSIRO+eleanorgatestuart+FASHFEST
Bugs make it to the fashion walkway at FASHFEST. Well sort of… Eleanor’s insect artwork is fused in a myriad of design as fashion fabrics for swimwear. A rather unusual brief and a very exciting challenge as one of the three artists selected by FASHFEST producer, Steve Wright, to contribute to the fashion event. Eleanor whose research with CSIRO and CPAS (ANU) specialises in using her art to illuminate science research and collaboration, such as, her designs for FASHFEST that focus on the 3D construction of insects for the Australian National Insect Collection (CSIRO) with the Division of Computational Informatics.
The FASHFEST theme of ‘Scientist’ fits perfectly with Eleanor’s own PhD research study in science and art, especially with her collaborative partnership with Dr Chuong Nguyen in their exploration of 3D printing of titanium insects and interactive exhibits, such as StellrScope.
Insect inspired designs ready for FashFest… great to be one of the selected artists to create designs for the swimwear fabric design.
Designs will be revealed on the night at FashFest – meanwhile here are a few snippets of my inspiration and research at CSIRO and the Australian National Insect Collection:

A huge “thank you” to the Canberra Critics Circle for acknowledging the ‘StellrScope’ Exhibition at Questacon. A wonderful tribute to the work produced as part of the Centenary of Canberra Science Art Commission and host partner with the CSIRO.
I share this award with all the terrific people who helped and collaborated in the making of StellrScope.
S C I E N C E + A R T ….. Yay!
Canberra Critics Circle:
The idea is that we, the critics, single out qualities we have noticed — things which have struck us as important. These could be expressed as abstracts, like impact, originality, creativity, craftsmanship and excellence.
The 22 year-old Canberra Critics’ Circle is the only such group of critics in Australia that runs across all the major art forms.

People tend to judge the benefits of Science Art collaborations by their tangible outputs, such as artworks, visualisations and other artefacts generally accessible to a wide audience. We argue that the process by which these artworks were created can be a significant, or even the principal benefit of these collaborations, even though it might be largely invisible to anyone other than the collaborators. We describe our experience of Art and Science as mutual catalysts for creativity and imagination within the context of a large multidisciplinary research organisation (The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation—CSIRO) and a major national exhibition—The Centenary of Canberra Science Art Commission. We have formed a view that Science and Art often pursue orthogonal dimensions of creativity and innovation, and that with the right approach and attitude, collaborators can combine these dimensions to access new areas of imagination and ideas. We discuss some of the challenges we have experienced in pursuing this aim, but conclude that the rewards to Art and Science—and the benefits they deliver to society—are well worth it.

“Eleanor Gates-Stuart has worked as part of a team also, with scientists and computer experts at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) providing specific expertise. As part of her Canberra Centenary science art commission StellrScopE, the team used a 3D scanner to map weevils and other bugs and insects, and enlarge them with detail intact. Such art and science collaborations are increasingly common, for instance the Synapse initiative of the Australia Council for the Arts and the Australian Network for Technology2 has facilitated collaborations between artists and scientists on a variety of projects over the last ten years.
Artworks produced during Gates-Stuart’s collaboration include two dimensional images and a group of three dimensional bugs printed in titanium and patinated in strong bright colour. The ‘re-birthed’ bugs, enlarged beyond their true size, are strange hybrids; neither toy nor specimen, props perhaps in a science fiction film or animation. Spot lit in the gallery this sense of the filmic is amplified”.
