Art meets science in a new collaboration! I’m pleased to announce an exciting collaborative project that gives me the opportunity to work with a group of fantastic artists and scientists! However, I’m not going to give too much away about what we are planning to do just yet….
The project is the initiative of Lynchpin – the Ocean Project (www.lynchpin.org.au), a program that supports ocean research through scholarships whilst encouraging arts/science conversations and collaborations that communicate important marine science to the community in new ways.I’ll be working with scientist Robert Johnston, scientist/cinematographer Nick Roden and Lynchpin Coordinator Sue Anderson, in a venture that seeks to bring together composition, film (including some astonishing footage from Antarctica / the Southern Ocean as well as specialised footage of the vital microscopic organisms responsible for planetary metabolism) and other visual elements to generate a different ‘experience’ of ocean science.
More information to follow over the coming months!
***Additional Information*** This is not from our project, but Meika Jensen passed this on for those who are interested – this is an intriguing infographic about the ocean and the need for more exploration and research: http://www.mastersdegree.net/explore-the-ocean/
