‘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.
Over in Australia with a great visit planned to SA Museum and planning of next projects. Contact me if you would like to catch up, chat about visits, research, have coffee… (June-Late August)
Great opening at Aglow Space Gallery

Just had to share one of my new images of Western Australia, part of the ‘Under the Surface’ mining project, residency at Scitech Discovery Centre 2016.
Australia to Taiwan: Professor Eleanor Gates-Stuart at National Cheng Kung University – Techno Art
Very excited to be taking up this overseas appointment in Taiwan having worked on many collaborative projects there over the years. This will be an opportunity to develop international research , artistic opportunities, projects and international networks.
Looking forward to be working and living between Taiwan and home in Australia, continuing my passion for science, arts and technology. Happy to hear from artists interested in developing research projects in these areas.

3D Grassland goes fabric for FASHFEST
The 3D animated ‘Grassland’ sequence provides the stunning design for one of the FASHFEST contemporary swimwear. The palm beetle and cicada (from the Australian National Insect Collection, CSIRO) are amongst the featured ‘stars’ in the designs, although they might be rather hard to find in the sheer brilliance and pattern of the printed fabric.
The other four designs are full of colour as you can imagine with such beautiful Australian insects as inspiration. These will be revealed on the night at FASHFEST.
There are also a suite of artworks from Grasslands as shown on Studio E L E A N O R G A T E S T U A R T Australia.
If you are interested in knowing more about Eleanor’s work – please contact her directly.
Following requests to buy artworks direct, eleanorgatestuart Collections are now online. Gradually updating the works – please enjoy and share the post
Feel free to contact in regards to commissions, projects and research.
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”.

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.
