Following in the footsteps of Art+Science Projects over the previous seven years, artists have engaged with research scientists from Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences (GNS), University of Otago (Geology, Geography, Zoology and Marine Science) and the Otago Regional Council, individually or in small groups, to develop artworks which respond to the theme of “earth science”.
Explore the formation of rocks, as they are layered across geologic time, under restless pressures, ruptures and constant change. Engage with the macro and the micro, with chaos and order.
Find out how our planet has made us. How have the connections between earth systems affected evolution throughout deep time, and changed the course of histories and cultures? What will our horizons look like in the new geological era of the Anthropocene? And what about those giant kumimanu penguins who once visited the shores of Zealandia?!
