Interactive art/science artwork: OBVERSE

My latest artwork, OBVERSE is part of a landmark exhibition Femel_Fissions at the Block, Creative Industries Precincts, Brisbane, Australia.

OBVERSE considers the fact that cell death is an integral part of the life process, in connection with the Nobel Prize winning research into cell growth factor by Rita Levi Montalcini

Femel_Fissions traces the historical influence of women on scientific discovery and research through newly commissioned works from leading Australian and international artists.

Featuring seven contemporary female art/science practitioners, Femel_Fissions will showcase works that have been created in response to groundbreaking discoveries by female scientists from the last three centuries, exploring the fields of neurology, biology, cytogenetics, psychology, primatology and anatomy.

Breaking down the boundaries and drawing commonalities between art and science, Femel_Fissions shows that both the artist’s studio and the scientist’s laboratory are sites for unrestricted inquiry and experimentation in this unique exhibition.
