Preparing for the forthcoming SciArt Workshop (LAB) 2017 in the US. A post-conference 2016: ‘Discovering the Deep Blue Sea’ Keck Futures funding initiative at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution with fellow collaborators (Artists & Scientists). It is going to be exciting to meet everyone again and participate in this experimental lab.

In writing mode for the works in progress, Blood Fusion, Orchid Plants in Collaboration with the Orchid Research and Development Centre at National Cheng Kung University. I might have seemed quiet since returning to Australia but that is because I am busy working on my research projects and the Orchids are very much a favourite. Here is a peek at the images created for documenting the process. A big project with lots of material to include. I am hoping share the results soon, hopefully a conference paper along side the artworks and photographs. © Eleanor Gates-Stuart

What an end to a great semester at National Cheng Kung University and having enjoyed being part of bringing this Techno Art Program into existence. Wonderful to have received my full Professorship and to have worked with some amazing colleagues and students. It will be exciting to hear of the 1st Techno Arts Masters students, 2017 graduation, and I hope they visit Australia in the future. This last semester was special by introducing students to science-art and to develop their research in collaboration with the Orchid Research and Development Centre (ORDC), NCKU. I will post more about my own research with ORDC soon. Now to life back in Australia 😀

‘Unravelling the Sequence’ the first in the series of images, photo-sketches, for the new body of work starting here at the National Cheng Kung University. This body of work extends my research here on the Campus of NCKU, probably the timing and response to having been here over a year, finding overlaps in my thought and experiences, as I live between Australia and Taiwan…. one world.
Those of you that know me will with no doubt grasp the context – just an experiment.
Science communication remains an import aspect of the investigation and the results are two-fold in this particular instance so I can wider the scope of the results.

Science + Art @ at the South Australia Museum
Congratulations to all applicants who entered this year’s Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize and for providing a challenging and exciting opportunity for the judging panel to select works for the prizes and also for the exhibition. The world of natural science is truly amazing, as shown through the works of all the contributing artists and confirmed by the diversity of the artworks entered. The intellect and intensity of Natural Science as an influential content is counterbalanced with works that resonate of personal and passionate conviction for natural science, close up, in our lives and of the wider planet.
If you have a chance to visit the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize 2016 at the South Australia Museum it will certainly be worthwhile. The exhibition showcases the finalist’s artworks drawn from the Open and Emerging Artist categories exploring the theme of Natural Science within their artwork. This year’s winner of the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize is artist, Julia deVille, for her stunning artwork, Neapolitan Bonbonaparte and artist, Dan Power as winner for the Emerging Artist category for his intriguing artwork, G(RAZED).
This year video works were included in the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize, entries in any form of visual fine art were eligible with the exception of photography.
Open Prize $30,000, sponsored by Fisher Jeffries, Barristers & Solicitors
Emerging Artist Prize $10,000, sponsored by the Hill Smith Gallery

Thank you ATWEN for publishing this article.
Great be be working in both Australia and Taiwan.
Revisiting artworks ‘Virus’ … actually these ones were never really completed rather a state of mind – thoughts expressed as video installations. The theme lead to other things such as my focus on Science+Art and the opportunity to research bioinformatics and genetic variation through other works such as ‘StellrScope’ and ‘FingerCodes’.
Amazing to see my family’s involvement in my work, how they have been a part of my work (always) and with tremendous respect to them.

Installation @ Scitech WA. The ‘Under the Surface’ Mining and Minerals has been installed and is up and running at Scitech WA. The work has been gerourously supported by CSIRO, KCGM Superpit, GeoScience Australia, DMP and Scitech Rio Tinto Innovation Central.
Contact Eleanor for more information
Happening soon…………… ‘Under the Surface’ @ SCITECH WA
Under the Surface – Mining & Minerals
Mining Data: Dr Peter Schaubs, CSIRO
Amazing support from Mineral Resources at CSIRO WA for ‘Under the Surface’, Scitech Artist Residency 2016 – Eleanor Gates-Stuart. Busy few days dashing between Scitech and CSIRO WA in bringing together Art+Science+Technology. Well done CSIRO for engaging with artists.
Eleanor Gates-Stuart, Visiting ‘scientist’ – artist at Mineral Resources CSIRO
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…………

Australia to Taiwan: Professor Eleanor Gates-Stuart at National Cheng Kung University – Techno Art
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

Communicating Science: Explorations through Science and Art
PhD thesis and final seminar complete. Created this image ‘Discovery’ to celebrate the research.
PhD Research study at the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS), Australian National University & the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

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.
Images show a watermark – this does not appear on original designs
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.
