StellrScope is to explore and build on the story connecting the Canberra region to Australia’s major crop, wheat, from the times of William Farrer through to the modern era.
StellrScope is a deep and intense scrutiny of the remarkable physical and biochemical traits of organisms in physical plant structures, namely wheat. Simplifying this complexity into stunning images of aesthetic analysis and graphical interface is a focus of the project and to construct a public artwork.
StellrScopE will be completed in 2013 and displayed at Questacon and the CSIRO Discovery Centre in Canberra.
