These beautiful artworks were created by Eleanor Gates-Stuart, CSIRO Science Art Fellow. She created them for StellrScope, her Centenary of Canberra Science Art Commission.
In StellrScope Eleanor explores the story connecting the Canberra region to wheat, which is Australia’s major food crop. The region has been a focus of wheat research from the times of pioneer wheat breeder William Farrer to today’s research at CSIRO.
Eleanor’s art is on display at the StellrScope exhibition at Questacon this August. StellrScope features video, print and installation artworks, so you can interact with the works and experience layers of biological information about wheat.
You can see some of Eleanor’s other work at Hot Seeds at CSIRO Discovery, which is also open during August.
