Description
A tripartite exhibition and public program schedule to support and engage with the biennial Ten Days on the Island festival of culture. Hosted by Makers Workshop (Burnie), the Academy Gallery (Inveresk), and the Plimsoll Gallery (Hobart), three exhibitions explore contemporary place-based making strategies incorporating the very best local Aboriginal Tasmanian artists (Burnie), nationally touring cultures of ritual (Inveresk), and the art-science collision (Plimsoll). These three are programmed in conjunction with Ten Days and have benefited from partnerships with Contemporary Art Tasmania, University of Southern Queensland, and Australia Council.

Making sense of biology data through artistic interactions (2015)$6,856
Description
This project draws on latest research results from the fields of visual arts, visualisation, health and education and aims to design and evaluate artistic interaction methods. It is hypothesised that by introducing artistic interactions, users will be more engaged with the sense-making process, thus making the visualisation more effective in conveying the embedded information to the end users, in comparison with traditional reality based interactions.
