“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”.

Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre Gallery:   Embracing Innovation Volume 3

Thursday, 18 July to Saturday, 24 August 2013

The development of Excellence in Research Australia (ERA) has seen changes take place within the Creative Arts in Australian tertiary institutions. Primary practice-based and practice-led research has been incorporated into universities research recognition and funding frameworks. Concurrently, craft practitioners and designer makers are embracing digital technologies, research and design thinking, with innovation and advances in these areas changing the way they engage, design and create.

In response, Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre presents, Embracing Innovation Volume 3, an exhibition showcasing innovation in the creative arts, with a particular focus on craft and design. The exhibition showcases makers who are exploring these new areas of practice.
