ACMI X events Experimenta Media Arts presents

Experimenta Social 19

Scroll to content

The collaboration between the arts and sciences has the potential to create new knowledge, ideas and processes beneficial to both fields. Artists and scientists approach creativity, exploration and research in different ways and from different perspectives; when working together they open up new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting the world around us.

In the lead up to October’s Spectra 2018 symposium and exhibition, Experimenta is partnering with the Australian Network for Art & Technology (ANAT) to showcase the diverse research being conducted as part of the CSIRO Synapse Artist-in-residence program. Pushing the boundaries of scientific traditions, Experimenta Social #19 speakers Jiann Hughes and Anton Hasell are delving into the precise frameworks of bio and physical structures in order to creatively influence advancements in their fields. 

About the speakers

Jiann Hughes’ research-led project with Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) investigates how biomedical applications might influence our understanding of what it is to be human. Hughes addresses the potential futures of this
technology by bringing MOFs and fungi to coexist together.

Anton Hasell uses 3D metal printing to discover new methods of bell production, analysing the frequency array of test castings and direct metal prints. By digitising traditional manufacturing methods, Hasell is able to achieve specific bell profiles.
