Questacon has a lovely gallery full of some really interesting pictures of wheat… that sounds much less exciting than it actually is.
It’s called StellrScope and it is rather pretty.
I quite enjoyed it when I went to have a look. The exhibition also has the advantage of being at Questacon, which is a rad place to go anyway.
Check it out if you get the chance.
Eleanor Gates-Stuart’s science art exhibition StellrScope, is in its final week at Questacon.
Gates-Stuart, a PhD candidate at the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science received the Centenary of Canberra Science Art Commission to create the work.
For StellrScope, she created an interactive installation to tell the story of wheat innovation, from the days of wheat pioneer William Farrer to the outstanding research at the CSIRO today.
As host to the Centenary Commission, CSIRO provided a residency for Eleanor and the position of CSIRO Science Art Fellow in the Food Futures Flagship and in Computational Informatics.
StellrScope is currently open at Questacon and closes Sunday 1 September.
