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 😀

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.

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.
