Fingers, Bugs and Time Travel

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

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.

The other designs will be under wraps until the FASHFEST event. Other collections of eleanorgatestuart can be viewed at www.eleanorgatestuart.net

FashFest: Art+Science+Fashion

Insect inspired designs ready for FashFest… great to be one of the selected artists to create designs for the swimwear fabric design.

Designs will be revealed on the night at FashFest – meanwhile here are a few snippets of my inspiration and research at CSIRO and the Australian National Insect Collection:

“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”.

Scientists and creative practitioners have more ways, and more reasons, to collaborate than ever before. Discover how the tools of cinematography, storyboarding, graphic design, and sound engineering are increasingly being used to communicate modern, complex science. This is opening up a whole new arena for creatives with an interest in science, and for creative scientists alike.

This event features live presentations from two world-leading biomedical animators and science communicators: Graham Johnson from the UCSF (USA) and Drew Berry – winner of a MacArthur Fellowship, a BAFTA and an Emmy award – from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne.

Following the talks, you will have a chance to network over a mixer in the adjacent MCA Lounge. There will also be an opportunity for a limited number of participants to briefly introduce their work to the audience. If your work bridges art, creativity, and science, and you wish to take advantage of this opportunity, please send short description of your work (one paragraph and one PNG image) by 23rd May, 5 PM EST, to vizbiplus@vizbi.org after you have registered for this event.

This event is presented by ‘VIZBI+ Visualising the Future of Biomedicine’, a new project funded by theInspiring Australia government initiative, the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research (WEHI), and CSIRO.

Very exciting to see that the final projections are a match to the concepts and artwork.

 

Mapping Insects (BUGS): Texture and Environment

3D reconstructed insects from the Australian National Insect Collection, CSIRO. The insects are placed on a static visual plane that changes in timeframe onto the building and have a visual dynamic effect from both walls or at a corner.

 

Grassland Series

Plants through an artistic 3D ‘lens’ and the complex structure of the plant, texture and DNA. A translated 3D model and simulated environment viewed as ‘internal’ landscape on external walls.
