Eleanor Gates-Stuart: Cracking the finger codes.

Press/Media: Press / Media

Description

In a recent exhibition at the CSIRO Discovery Centre, Canberra, artist Eleanor Gates-Stuart showed one way of carrying out art practice based in science. While not wishing to identify as one herself, the artist has expressed the wish to work with scientists, posing them the question: 'How can I translate your work?' While initial reactions to Gates-Stuart's artwork can swing between a purely aesthetic response to her brilliantly-coloured inkjet prints and lithographs, and the cerebral challenge of figuring out what they mean, it is not always clear whether the works are scientific in the sense of experimental, or rather, as the artist puts it, scientific elements 'interpreted as visual artefacts'.
