‘Under the Surface’ focuses on WA mining and minerals and the innovation involved in looking under the earth’s surface working with research scientists at CSIRO WA and Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines. Visualising innovation is a crucial part of this research and the context of scientific brilliance as it places Australia at the cutting edge of global science. ‘Under the Surface’ is commissioned by the Scitech Discovery Centre (WA) and as Artist in Residence, Gates-Stuart explores ways in which art can help communicate science to non-scientists and scientists alike, particularly in this instance of the science museum. The installation is aimed at playful engagement allowing the audience to interact with the artwork by using their body gesture (hand movement) to control and explore the layers of context.
Influenced by scientific innovation and with reference to historical artefacts, ‘Under the Surface’ is a collaboration of knowledge and information sharing in bringing this artwork to completion. It explores complexity of technology in scientific and industrial innovation, repositories of information (both physical collection and electronic) through visual communication and interpretation through artworks.

‘... our ability to generate large geoscience datasets is beginning to outstrip our ability to integrate and interpret them. Capturing and managing the geological uncertainty, incomplete evidence, and the scientific debate characteristic of creating an understanding of Australia and its mineral systems through time is a major challenge’.

Amazing support from Mineral Resources at CSIRO WA for 'Under the Surface', Scitech Artist Residency 2016 - Eleanor Gates-Stuart. Busy few days dashing between Scitech and CSIRO WA in bringing together Art+Science+Technology. Well done CSIRO for engaging with artists.
Exploring spaces at Scitech WA as planning for my Artist in Residence work is under development. A few days to meet with the amazing team of staff and enjoying seeing the exhibits full of visitors - so much fun.
Will keep posting about the project especially as we move nearer the date to the launch. Had a great look around all the spaces and saw a super cool exhibition about to open. I had a special peek of the exhibition behind the scenes. Lots to think about………...
Back in Australia to take a first look at the hardware in preparation for the artworks for 'Under the Surface' at Scietech Discovery Centre, WA. Cannot wait.
