Welcome to the art of science communication
Science communicators often turn to the creative arts in their visual science communication projects. Whether many of these works would be called art is highly contested. On the other hand, many could easily be called works of design. So how do these different fields interact in their science-related visual displays?
This exhibition explores works that range across visual communication, design, and art, teasing at the boundaries of these fields and considering how they play into the field of science communication.
Presented at the Powerhouse Museum throughout the ASC 2018 conference, and at Queensland College of Art, the exhibition invited inspection, reflection, and comparison of works that are aesthetically interesting and intellectually challenging.
