New Constellations

Posted in CCS-blog on April 10th, 2006

A three day conference at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney attracted artists, scientists and others for an exchange of views and experiences about collaboration in creative ventures. Several weeks afterwards I am struggling to remember the highlights: plenty of words both fascinating and empty, the works that were shown, the start of a debate about what the different worlds of art and science can learn from one another, the artists already active in taking knowledge and techniques from science and technology into their creative scope.

Syren a mobile sound work that uses a GPS for associating sounds with locations on Sydney Harbour by Nigel Hellyer in collaboration with Daniel Woo a nice finale to the event.

The MCA did well and should be encouraged to engage more in this area
