A captivating, immersive exhibition is shining a light on the connection between art and science, and providing a unique insight into the critical issues facing our planet.
Spinning World launched on Thursday 8 August at the University of Wollongong (UOW) Library’s Panizzi Room, where it will be on display until 20 October.
Created by UOW researchers Dr Jo Law and Dr Agnieszka Golda, Spinning World was first exhibited earlier this year at Sydney’s Powerhouse Musuem, part of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, where more than 26,000 people experienced the enchanting and immersive installation.
Inspired by historical Japanese textiles and informed by the researchers’ joint fellowship at the museum, the exhibition explores the relationship between art, emerging technologies, and ecology. It is a multi-sensory experience, incorporating data on climate change, multimedia content, museum objects, new materials, and original artworks.
