Canberra artists have been working with CSIRO to ‘capture the cosmos’. The result is an exhibition of astronomically inspired work by the Artists Society of Canberra’s Abstract and Experimental Group that will show at CSIRO Discovery Centre from 1 February.
Astronomical images have inspired people throughout the ages. For the last few decades, however, new technologies have given us new views of space.
CSIRO operates world-class radio telescopes that are used by its own astronomers and other astronomers from around Australia and all over the world. It has been ‘capturing the cosmos’ since 1947.
CSIRO invited the Artist’s Society of Canberra to respond to images produced by CSIRO staff and telescopes.
You can catch it at the CSIRO Discover Centre on Clunies Ross Drive.
