Event description

Description

Join the art-science collaborative Scale Free Network and physicist Andrew Melatos as they explain the art and science behind Hierarchy of Eddies.

Featured in Experimenta Make Sense (RMIT Gallery 2 October - 11 November) Hierarchy of Eddies is an installation where audiences can interact with a large transparent chamber of swirling white balls, evoking the recent scientific concept of ‘complex systems’.

This project is presented as part of Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art, exhibiting a program of over 20 leading international and Australian artists. Both playful and challenging, this exhibition asks audiences to immerse their senses into a ‘thinking’, ‘feeling’ and ‘doing’ contemplation of what it is to be human in the digital age of technological acceleration. See the exhibition at RMIT Gallery from 2 October – 11 November 2017.or visit the website for full exhibition details www.experimenta.org/makesense

About Scale Free Network

Scale Free Network is a Melbourne-based, art-science collaborative founded by conceptual artist Briony Barr and microbial ecologist Dr Gregory Crocetti. Since 2007, SFN have developed their interdisciplinary methodology through workshops, participatory installations, exhibitions and publishing projects, created in collaboration with artists, scientists, writers and educators. SFN projects aim to visualise and imaginatively engage with the invisible majority (microbial communities, physical systems and forces beyond human perception), to question the human-scale lens through which we relate to the world.

SFN have presented their work in a diverse range of contexts nationally and internationally, including art galleries, museums, science institutions, festivals, conferences and schools. The list includes the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul; South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute; the National Gallery of Victoria; the Royal Institution of Australia; Gertrude Contemporary; A Centre for Everything; ArtPlay; Counihan Gallery; Ipswich Art Gallery; World Science Festival, Brisbane; OtherFilm Festival; the Environmental Health Clinic; and the International Symbiosis Society Congress.
