Finger, Bugs and Time Travel all sound like a great title for an Artwork.
These are new leaflets available on the works: FingerCodes, Titanium Insects and Nautical Mix.

The seconds it took to recall that moment were irrelevant
A series of works based on facets of time, remnants of history that feature in our culture of workforce, discovery and innovation.
Amazing series of presenters and excellent event

Submarines, ships, historical buildings, vintage belongings, maps, technical drawings.. all with a twist of heritage and family clans. Artworks made for a very special commission and for their forthcoming special event.

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”.

The ‘BlueSky’ images are part of a concept series created for a large scale installation work. ‘BlueSy_T’ is an arial view of the 3D scene showing the insects in the undergrowth.
‘BlueSky’ is on exhibition at SciArt2012:the secret lives of scientists at the Discovery Centre, CSIRO, Canberra.
