Content

In this unit art and science are brought together to explore possibilities of lens based media with an emphasis on technology as both scientific instrument and artistic medium. The unit will examine the methodologies that construct worldviews of science, art and culture, and the means by which scientific methods can be used for artistic purpose. Pseudo-science, scientific hoaxes, science fiction and its mythologies are also subject to investigation. Seminars will present examples of artists exploring science and scientists who use or investigate art as an aesthetic means of visualising data. Individual and collaborative studio workshops will equip students to make basic scientific discoveries by means including microscopy, astro-photography, forensic imaging, as well as to critically analyse scientific claims.
