Under the Surface – Mining & Minerals
Mining Data: Dr Peter Schaubs, CSIRO
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.
