As Curiosity landed on Mars Sculpture students from the UTAS Tasmanian School of Art have been busy investigating and responding to ideas of Satellite.
The results will be shown at a new exhibition called Satellite: It is not Rocket Science at Kelly’s Garden, off Kelly’s Lane, in Salamanca, Hobart.
The artworks present diverse interpretations of the satellite theme, including celestial bodies, artificial intelligence collection, orbits and gravitational force, indexation, seed dispersal and outposts as forms of satellite.
Head of Sculpture, Mr John Vella, said the exhibition showcases the talent of 2012’s second-year Sculpture students.
“The Satellite program is a significant opportunity for sculpture students to develop their work, explore site specific practice and engage in a professional public context,” Mr Vella said.
The exhibition opens at 6pm on Friday 17 August 2012 at Kelly’s Garden, Salamanca Arts Centre and will run until Sunday 21 August 2012.
