Australia is one of the slowest changing landscapes in the world. In some remote regions, nothing has changed for 130,000 years. How do scientists and artists interpret this timescale? And what happens when artists meet scientists ‘in the field’?
As part of a new venture for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage (CABAH), artists are working alongside science researchers in remote locations and high-tech labs. What happens when we bring creative experts into the scientific picture?
In this panel discussion, CABAH geologist Tim Cohen and internationally acclaimed sound and video artists Sonia Leber and David Chesworth will showcase this new work, share their experiences and consider the increasing intersection and fascinating relationship between art and science.
WHEN SCIENCE MEETS ART: Shifting Perspectives on the Australian Landscape is presented in conjunction with Program Partner CABAH.
