StellrScope celebrates the story of wheat innovation over the last century, from the days of wheat experimentalist William Farrer to the food futures research of today.
The Centenary Science Art Commission is jointly funded by the ACT Government and the Australian Government and is one of many projects taking place to mark the Centenary of Canberra in 2013. StellrScopE will be completed in 2013 and displayed at Questacon and the CSIRO Discovery Centre in Canberra.

On going research relating to imagery beyond visual identification in scientific experiment. ‘Virus Series’ is an abstractive collection of viral depictions used as video ‘painting’ installation – a series of works conceptually evident and fused into new work, particularly ‘FingerCodes’.
Ongoing investigation ‘Finger Codes’ … notions of identity.
Interested in embedding visual coded material and 3D mapping.
