Paper presented at IEEE VIS 2013, Atlanta, US

Abstract:

People tend to judge the benefits of Science Art collaborations by their tangible outputs, such as artworks, visualisations and other artefacts generally accessible to a wide audience. We argue that the process by which these artworks were created can be a significant, or even the principal benefit of these collaborations, even though it might be largely invisible to anyone other than the collaborators. We describe our experience of Art and Science as mutual catalysts for creativity and imagination within the context of a large multidisciplinary research organisation (The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation—CSIRO) and a major national exhibition—The Centenary of Canberra Science Art Commission. We have formed a view that Science and Art often pursue orthogonal dimensions of creativity and innovation, and that with the right approach and attitude, collaborators can combine these dimensions to access new areas of imagination and ideas. We discuss some of the challenges we have experienced in pursuing this aim, but conclude that the rewards to Art and Science—and the benefits they deliver to society—are well worth it.

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.

StellrScope

StellrScope Logo by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

StellrScope celebrates the story of wheat innovation over the last century, from the days of wheat experimentalist William Farrer to the food futures research of today.

StellrScope is the Centenary of Canberra Science Art Commission awarded for 2013. StellrScope Blog

The Centenary Science Art Commission is jointly funded by the ACT Government and the Australian Government and is one of many projects taking place to mark the Centenary of Canberra in 2013. StellrScopE will be completed in 2013 and displayed at Questacon and the CSIRO Discovery Centre in Canberra.
