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.

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.
