Mad Scientist Tea Party

The Edge, State Library of Queensland

Multiple Dates

Mad Scientist Tea Party

Share Mad Scientist Tea Party

Event Details

Under the stars there is a table set with tea for our mad scientists and their guests. Take a seat, and prepare to indulge in curiosities from the scientific world. From biological art to beating heart tissue cultures, each session will feature a local scientist with a tale of experiment and discovery to share, along with a selection of short 'slam' style contributions from local scientists.

Spoken Science workshops, hosted by local slam poet Scott Sneddon, will be available in the lead up to the Tea Party for any science based professionals or students that would like to be on the line up. See below for details.

Svenja Kratz - 15 May
Svenja Kratz is an interdisciplinary artist interested in the intersections and creative possibilities within art and science. Based in Brisbane, for the past three years she has produced an evolving series of exhibitions collectively titled The Absence of Alice. Her work maps the creative evolution and movement of this initial project into other areas of applied biology, including genetic engineering, and primary culture of human and fetal calf cells. She is currently completing a PhD in bio-media art, looking at of cell and tissue cultures at QUT in a creative partnership between the Creative Industries Faculty and Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI).

Keith Armstrong - 12 June
Keith Armstrong is a Senior Research Fellow at QUT and freelance new media artist. His research examines how scientific and philosophical ecologies can impact the design and conception of networked, interactive media artworks. For the past seventeen years, he has specialised in collaborative, hybrid, new media works, focusing on innovative performance forms, site-specific electronic arts, networked interactive installations, alternative interfaces, public arts practices, and art-science collaborations. Keith's artworks have been show extensively in both Australia and overseas, and he has been the recipient of numerous grants from the public and private sectors. He was formerly an Australia Council New Media Arts Fellow, a doctoral and Postdoctoral New Media Fellow at QUT's Creative Industries Faculty and a lead researcher at the ACID Australasian Cooperative Research Centre for Interaction Design.

Drew Titmarsh – 23 June (as part of the Science Fair)
Drew Titmarsh is a Post-Doctorate Research Fellow and PhD Candidate in Bioengineering at The University of Queensland. His work focuses on microfluidic design and fabrication, Pluripotent stem cell culture and differentiation, MATLAB modeling. He is currently working with leading laboratories and commercial partners to commercialize the microbio-reactor array technology that he developed in his PhD thesis. His work contributes to research currently being done into regenerative medicine, such as next-generation therapies using stem cells, as well as for pre-clinical drug screening and basic biological research.
