Living in Melbourne can be inspiring. Wandering through Federation Square, as you do, on the way somewhere else, I found a few aluminum viewing stations scattered in the Atrium.
They turned out to be part of ‘Science in the Square‘, Melbourne’s first Art in Science exhibition.
Hosted by The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, there are many events to discover.
Plus!! Underneath Melbourne, the once grungy, now Dirty exhibition space running from Flinders Street Train station to Degraves Lane has been revitalised.
The first exhibition, Prevaricated Frequencies, has been handed over to a bunch of arty engineers, Skunk Control.Each of the Dozen windows are filled with prismatic elements and all the passers by are captivated. They must be for they are all taking photos with their phones, as was I!Because those circles of prisms spin, the images change all the time. This is an exhibition you need to see for yourself. Catch the train!
Both these exhibitions encourage the viewer to reexamine assumptions both about science and art. How do we look at the world? What are we seeing?
