The Art and Consequence of Collaboration is a group exhibition illustrating the extraordinary creative potential of art and science research collaborations. From a reimagined periodic table of elements, to the re-staging of an AFL game using GPS and performance data, to the visceral and earthy scent of gaseous rocks, each of the works selected provokes us into new ways of experiencing and interpreting the world around us.
Experimenta is excited to be working with our colleagues at ANAT on Spectra 2018, Australia’s pre-eminent art/science gathering showcasing the best research and creative work being produced through interdisciplinary collaborations between Australian artists and scientists.
Spectra 2018 explores the increasing convergence of art and science and considers how each area impacts the other and how, together, they shed light on who we are and where we’re heading. Taking place in Adelaide, South Australia, the inaugural Spectra will comprise a three-day symposium presenting collaborative research, an exhibition showcasing research outcomes, and a compelling public program of screenings, talks, performances and special events.
Spectra 2018 is proudly presented by the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT), in partnership with the University of South Australia and Experimenta Media Arts, in association with colleagues from the arts and science sectors, and with additional support provided by Arts South Australia.
