The Artlab involves 22 months of rigorous research and experimentation between a ‘rapid response’ team of international ‘ecological health’ experts who are also practicing media artists, designers and engineers. The Sydney Artlab has investigated the Flying Fox relocation program to be undertaken at Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens and provided design solutions that depend on nurturing human / bat relations. These include the wonderful Botanic Garden Xtension at Barangaroo and the exhibition X.
Gardending Superfund Sites is an art project that fosters discourse around the issues of nature preservation, industry, and activism. Information and workshops with students and community groups to create a call to action to high tech industries to take responsibility for their actions.
