Ele Jansen

I'm currently working on my PhD in media anthropology at UNSW in Sydney. My predominant interest lies in practices of transmedia film production. If you're working on a project that includes film, mobile phones, RFID, QR codes, websites, geotech... I'd be interested in a collaboration.

Daniel Bisig

In my research I explore and evaluate concepts and methodologies from those sciences, which pursue a synthetic approach, with regard to their applicability to art and design.

Antonia Posada-Olaya

In an initial search for the undiscovered beauty of nature, I decided to train my eyes as a scientist and as an artist. That is why I simultaneously did a bachelor in Biology and in fine Arts, and began to blend these two approaches to interpret the aesthetics of what surrounded me.

I have developed an ‘expanded drawing practice’ exploring the relationship between perceptory experience and forces in the natural and constructed world.

Patsy Payne

My practice has been characterised by an ongoing interest in the relationship of my body to the rest of the world and how the boundary between the individual and the world seems to be a permeable membrane rather than an opaque barrier.

Stories are the way we grasp information and integrate it within the context of our lives. In a world where science is progressing at an exponential pace, my practice of design aims to craft subtle and engaging scenarios at the intersection between science and society.

My art practice explores new methods of evoking felt corporeal experiences and related emotional states of mind. Most of my work has focused on experiences related to being in, or close to, water.

Activity

The Canberra National Sculpture Forum

In April, Canberra hosted the triennial National Sculpture Forum. An event which successfully raised the profile of the artform without the controversy of 1995's 'Down By the Lake With Liz and Phil' - a performance which involved the smashing of large ceramic figures of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

The core of this year's forum was provided by 23 projects selected from open submission and located mainly in the lakeside grounds and public institutions of the Parliamentary Triangle.

Songs of the Earth

The Siren Mole's (SO2) is a new, genetically engineered animal by Patricia Piccinini. Exhibited at The Melbourne Zoo (as a part of the Melbourne Festival)
& Songs of the Earth, Museum Fridericianum, Kassel 2000

(The World May Be) Fantastic

13th Biennale of Sydney - (The World May Be) Fantastic explores the way artists use narratives, models, fictions and fabrications to challenge and to change our interpretations of the world.

Since its inauguration in 1973 at the Sydney Opera House, the Biennale of Sydney has presented the best of international and national contemporary art and is now ranked as one of the most important exhibitions of its type in the world. It has been provocative, edgy, entertaining and uplifting.

Los Dias y Las Noches de los Muertos

Los Días y Las Noches de Los Muertos is a ghost work of counter-memories, tracing thresholds of impossibilities beyond the blank gaze of pan-capitalism. A drifting carnival of five micro-stages recombines the newest blue-eyed sons of star wars, top-sight trajectories of power and capital, and the living dead who name themselves Zapatistas.

White Noise: Black on Black, White On White

This work invites you to explore the limits of your visual perception. A geometric pattern unfolds across a background of similar colour; the subtle difference between the two appears only when the display is viewed from certain angles, due to the polarization of light. Duckworth comments that 'to 'see' the work requires an 'active reconfiguring of our viewing habits'.

Auspex Australis

This is an experimental inter-media project drawing on Scientific Research carried out by Dr Janos Hennicke and his colleagues at the Pink House Research Station on Christmas Island.
Auspex Australis is a creative vehicle for highlighting the importance of this remote Australian Indian Ocean Territory as an ecological barometer and for attracting wider public attention to its unique habitat.

'Afterimage' presents depictions of places and occurrences experienced in my childhood in Poland.
This series was created by collaborating with nature’s processes.

Transmediale

Collaborative project with Shu Lea Cheang, 'Moving Forest'; a 12 hour 5 act sonic and visual performance to be intervened by an expandable citywide operatic manoeuver with public wifi and mobile technology. Derived from Kurosawa's film version of Macbeth (Throne of Blood, 1957).
Linda works with Processing (open source software) to generate flying arrows from mobile phone and web connections and splattered blood stains from input from scrying boards that pick up the invisible ever present electro magnetic fields our appliances and devices produce.

Temporal Intervals

"Temporal Intervals" will have a few components:

1. The installation in the stairwell:
Obsolete scientific equipment is activated by the presence of the viewer.

2. The viewer can further interact with the machines by pressing a foot pump to change the path of the ink traces on the recording drum. Emphasis is placed on the comparison between the analogue obsolete machine processes and the virtual, digital domainA disembodied soundscape composed of noises made by the scientific machines will be playing at various locations around the building.

Metafluidology

Metafluidology is a survey of the artist’s investigations into the dynamics of different forms of energy.
These include drawings made by wind machines in various locations, photographs of phenomena created through devices constructed by the artist, time exposures of light, movement and magnetic dynamics, and the machine that creates a liquid cloud field in a poetic work on fluid dynamics. The movement of air is expressed in a work involving organ-pipes and the sound they generate.

Visible Human Bodies

Australian Centre for Photography
Sydney

Peta Clancy'sVisible Human Bodies(VHB) will be exhibited at the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery in the United Kingdom from 30 April until 10 July in 2005 as part of the Brighton Festival.

Transformers

Through images, text, fingerprints and DNA sequencing (from hair samples of the subjects) a series of abstract layers of identity will be woven together to create the fascia for the “identity chamber. The physical chamber, a tent-like construction, made from semi-transparant tensioned latex, can be entered and walked through by viewers, while the visual translations of identity are projected onto the chamber’s walls. A metaphorical recombination takes place, identity becomes an elastic (en)coded building process.

Hybrid Life Forms

hybridforms takes the viewer into the lush undergrowth of contemporary Australia: strange confessions, dark memories, hybrids. As has been the case for its flora and fauna, Australia's isolation has had peculiar effects on its artists too. They bring invisible life to the surface in various ways, producing unexpected results. The enormous diversity and vitality of technological growth is central to hybridforms. Like Europe, Australia has been quick to pick up on new developments.
