Evolving Virus

'Evolving Virus' paintings by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

‘Evolving Virus’ paintings by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

‘Evolving Virus’ paintings – a theme that has been with me for many years and being back in Australia with time in my studio (I have to say it is like having a arts residency since I been overseas for a couple of years) is great to visit these works again.

“You are still working on them.. !!” my son asked as he featured in the initial series in which the paintings were created for an installation and more importantly led to my PhD at the National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (ANU). I remember asking my potential supervisor at that time, Professor Susan M. Stocklmayer AO, if I could combine arts and science for my research and luckily she said “yes” and became my supervisor. These works have undergone a few changes since then and it is great to be looking at them with fresh eyes.

It is not that I ever forgot them but my research took some interesting directions, such as FingerCodes, StellrScope, Under the Surface and more recently Orchids. Even though I love being in the science labs I have to confess that I enjoy getting my fingers in the paint as well. You never know.. maybe I can ‘paint’ with biological material soon.

Shirty Science

Sketching out my Thoughts  - Eleanor Gates-Stuart

Sketching out my Thoughts – Dr Eleanor Gates-Stuart

It has been great fun to be involved in Shirty Science this year and to team up with Dr Marija Mustac as ‘Project Earthquake’. What a terrific initiative by Madison Hartill-Law to come up with the idea of Shirty Science – check out: website and facebook page.

Marija and I have completed our project design which will be released soon via Shirty Science – so no sneak peek just yet!!

However, I wanted to sketch out my thoughts on one sheet to document my thoughts and have as a keepsake. I do tend to use post-it (sticky notes) to think through ideas and this sheet actually starts with my first sketch ‘taking shape’ as I contemplated how I would exchange ideas with my scientist partner, Marija. Interesting how Marija’s research focuses on tracking earthquakes and I have experienced quite a few from living in Taiwan … a great start for the both of us!! Anyway, not to discuss our completed design but to post this page as an insight to the experience for me. Keep  a look out for all this year’s fabulous designs from Shirty Science.

Sweet Hearts – the perfect match (DNA) by Dr Eleanor Gates-Stuart

A new work from the Orchid Research Series that originated at the Orchid Research and Development Centre at the National Cheng Kung University. This work is a tribute to the ORDC and to Professor Hong-Hwa and her team, as my orchid research experiment project and the work I currently have in progress is influenced by the innovative and experimental nature of this lab.

I am also looking for other research partners to continue the work here in Australia and Internationally.

Bioart: Orchids

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

Techno Art with Professor Eleanor

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 😀

 

The Techno Art Professor's (Eleanor Gates-Stuart) office busy: A launch soon in association with the NCKU Orchid Center. The artists are creating some very cool works from their research at National Cheng Kung University.

Image: Unravelling the Sequence by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

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.

Family Genes

'Family Genes' by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

‘Family Genes’ by Artist, Eleanor Gates-Stuart

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.

Post-it sketches

Post-it sketches (x3) by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

Post-it sketches (x3) by Eleanor Gates-Stuart ©

Post-it sketches reflect my thoughts and capture snippets of my daily life. They have been something that sit in the background to my artist practice – more of a distraction to what I am actually doing and sometimes an enjoyable gift to send a friend and share with family.  Drawing has always been part of my life but I never really regarded any of these sketches as an influence until I was in my final year at art school. It was then that they became part of my work having gained the confidence to put them out in public. A tutor had seen one of my letters that I was writing to a friend and asked about all the sketches that I was adding into the letter and asked if this was something that I enjoyed. Much of my earlier work show signs of this approach as I fluctuated through various stylistic methods to tell a story – more often to deflect the viewer from the real story or the images being personalised. A bit of a contraction really as everyone knew they were my drawings.

I still add drawings to my letters, enjoying a fountain pen and smudging my sketch with my fingers. These days I do not write as many letters as I would like to send as email is so much quicker and I guess that is why I started using the post-it notes as they are always on my desk. A thought will be put straight onto the note and then my iphone would send it off to a friend or add it up to my facebook page where I enjoy sharing the sketches with friends. I always placed them on my personal page rather than my art pages as I still wanted to keep them close, especially as they tend to be about my friends or my personal life.

So why make them more public? Interestingly, they have become part of my research study in a discussion relating to the framing of ideas. More so…… it has been great to receive lots of feedback from folks and that is as enjoyable for me as sharing the sketches. I do not have many early ones as they were all sent out in letters – you never know they might still have a few around if the content was directly about them or if they are as as much a ridiculous a hoarder of things as me.
